ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Public Schools says it will not have to cut 2-percent of next year’s budget as it once feared.

The district says that’s partly because fewer teachers are needed after it lost more than 1,000 students.

It is also counting on the legislature not cutting its funding when it meets for a special session next week.

APS says it is still short about $13 million.

Proposals to make up at that money include a 1.5-percent pay cut for some year-round employees.
