During this time away from school, BPS would like to provide you with ideas and websites containing activities you can do with your student. This is just a small list of links to educational websites. There are thousands more to select from. This will not replace instruction; however, this is a way to help keep our students busy and learning during this break.
You can also visit “Talking to Children About COVID-19 (Coronavirus): A Parent Resource” by clicking this link. Thank you for your support.
All of these books were published within the past few years, reflect the people who call New Mexico home, and are excellent reading and great for teaching. The list includes picture books, middle grade, young adult, horror, mysteries, fantasy, poetry, and nonfiction.

Bernalillo Public Schools Superintendent’s Equity Council
Definition of Equity
Bernalillo Public Schools (BPS) is committed to educational fairness and opportunity for all racial and ethnic groups and academic excellence and personal success for each and every student in our school district. Central to this commitment is educational equity. Educational equity means raising the achievement of all students while (1) addressing the achievement gaps between the lowest and highest performing students; and (2) eliminating the racial and socio-economic predictability or disproportionality of which student groups occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories.
Purpose of the Superintendent’s Equity Council:
The purpose of the Superintendent’s Equity Council is to provide leadership in creating an equity plan based on a Martinez and Yazzie readiness assessment at the district level, specific to the needs of economically disadvantaged students, Native American students, English learners, and students with disabilities. The mission of the Equity Council is to ensure Bernalillo Public Schools’ engage students in the highest quality of learning, prepare students for responsible productive citizenship, and inspire students to be college and career ready regardless of ethnicity and socioeconomic status.
