The updated Social Studies standards received discussion too as the state pressures districts to implement Critical Race Theory in the classroom. APS will host a Lunch and Learn event about Critical Race Theory at the Artesia Country Club November 2nd. Doors open 11:45am and the program begins at 12:15pm. Learn about what the theory is, what APS is doing, and what you can do as well.
The School Board was also addressed by a group of concerned citizens expressing chagrin regarding the impending state mandate for COVID-19 vaccinations for students of APS. Vaccinations and Critical Race Theory are at the top of many conversation lists around the community.
