ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Sign Language Academy is getting a long-awaited expansion. The addition will be with the help of Bernalillo County and the state.

This morning, the public was invited to celebrate the completion of the school’s design with staff and students.

This will be the first charter school in New Mexico to engage in the PSFA system, something the executive director hopes to see more of.
