Parent Power

Pretty powerful pack of punch right here. In the Bible, the revivals started with a call to bring the Book, the Law, and the reading of it. They had forgotten the Law and consequently forgot who they were. Likewise, in many of our cases, we don’t know who we are and what our own law says so we get run over. Here is a good example of parent power over their school district.

APS to pay $40K to parent after failing to respond to IPRA request

    • Albuquerque Public Schools is shelling out tens of thousands of dollars to a parent after failing to hand over public records.
    • She filed more requests in January and July of 2021 but never received the records or a response from APS. Under the Inspection of Public Records Act, the district has to hand over records within 15 days or give a legitimate reason why they can not fulfill the request.
    • Under a settlement reached this week, APS must release those records within five days and pay Jenson $40,000. It also requires the district to shore up its Inspection of Public Records Act procedures and make sure it has enough staff to respond to requests.
