New Mexico Public School Facilities Authority


The Public School Facilities Authority (PSFA), administrative staff to the Public School Capital Outlay Council (PSCOC), is updating the statewide Adequacy Standards this year.  These standards establish the minimum educational space and equipment needs for every public school in New Mexico.  We need input from each school community to ensure the changes are relevant and effective.  The changes that are made this year may impact the size of important spaces in all public schools, including general education classrooms, libraries, special education spaces, gyms, and more.

 Please participate in this short survey.  As owners and users of the school facilities, you are best suited to assist us as we revise the Adequacy Standards.  Once the results of the survey are received, they will be tallied and reviewed by the PSCOC, with public hearings before the Adequacy Standards are reissued.

A NEW tutoring program for students in grades 4th, 5th and 6th began on February 20, 2018.  Participation in this tutoring program requires a teacher referral.  Tutoring will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.  Student-athletes attending tutoring must complete 1 hour of tutoring before they are released to their Coach for practice.  Transportation home is available through the Activity Bus.

Parent/guardians, through the end of the school year, please check weekly with your student to see if they received a Tutoring Referral Form.  If yes, please sign and return the form by the next school day.  A student will not be allowed to stay if they do not have a signed referral/permission form.

The goal of this tutoring program is to provide additional support to students struggling in class; it is not to take place of regular instructional time during the school day nor is it to take place of family assistance at home.  Jemez Valley Elementary and Middle School appreciate your support in helping make this initiative a success.

New Research Shows Nearly Half of American Parents Underestimate the Harm of School Absences

A student who misses just two days of school each month — 18 days total in the year — is considered to be chronically absent. However, many parents don’t realize that, even when excused or understandable, absences add up and can greatly impact a child’s education. In the United States, more than 6 million children are chronically absent from school each year....Click here to read the full article.


School Visitor Management System


JVPS is using Raptor, a visitor management system that enhances school security by reading a visitor's driver's license and/or state ID and checking the information against multiple security databases and establishing a consistent visitor sign-in process across the district. When the visitor is accepted, the system prints a visitor's sticker with a picture identifying him/her as an approved visitor.

Raptor only scans the visitor's name, date of birth and photo for comparison purposes. No other personal identifying information is saved. 

Check in

If the system raises a question about a visitor's background, the school administrator will take the necessary steps to ensure the appropriateness of each individual's visit.

Upon your initial visit to a school, the process will take approximately 30 seconds; however, on return visits you will only be required to provide your name to the secretary and the system will recognize you.

The safety of our students and staff is a top priority in Jemez Valley Public Schools. This new process simply enhances their safety and security by limiting access to those who pose a potential threat.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact your child's building principal.
