THE DISTRICT of Bernalillo Public Schools

We developed this plan in partnership with students,
families, and staff to ensure that many voices
were represented.

Core Values and Commitments to our Students

Student Impact

As a district, we are committed to making decisions that are targeted to student impact. We aspire to make decisions that influence an increase in student outcomes. When our focus is on students, we know that all other elements of our work will fall in place.


We act with uncompromising honesty in our decisions, building trust with responsible actions and honest relationships. Not all decisions will be perfect or even correct, but we own these decisions, we make adjustments, and we strive to improve.


We are passionate about what we do, and we always bring our best. Each day, we know we can do better. We work with a growth mindset that is dedicated to continuous improvement.

Thoughtful Communication

We know that we can achieve more through collaboration and feedback, and we seek to empower all our stakeholders to have a voice in our efforts. We seek to challenge assumptions and create clarity around our work.

Servant Leadership

We seek to give more than we take. We look for ways to improve and contribute to the success of others.
We understand that it is a privilege to serve the students, families, and staff of our communities.
