An Analysis of the Charter School Facility Landscape in Albuquerque
In the spring of 2016, the National Charter School Resource Center (NCSRC), the Colorado League of Charter Schools (the League), the New Mexico Coalition for Charter Schools (NMCCS), and the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools (the Alliance) collaborated to collect data and information about charter school facilities and facilities expenditures in the city of Albuquerque. The data collection in Albuquerque was supported by the Charter School Facilities Initiative (CSFI), which is a national project developed by the League to research charter school facilities and facilities expenditures across the country.
The Charter School Facilities Initiative team identified 50 brick and mortar Albuquerque charter school facilities that were eligible to participate in this project. Seventy-eight percent (78%) of eligible charter school facilities (39 out of 50) completed the Charter School Facilities Survey. The survey methodology used for the report was designed to address Albuquerque-specific charter school facility and policy related issues, including shared use information, facility amenities, ownership, financing, grade levels and waiting lists.
