Kizito Wijenje, AICP, is the Executive Director of the Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) Capital Master
Plan (CMP) that guides the expenditure of capital resources of the district including all improvements to
buildings, major equipment acquisition, technology and land acquisition. A primary role of the CMP is
educational space utilization that ensures that facility designs remain aligned and relevant with both
instructional, operational and budgetary realities, as well as the life, health safety and security of our
students and educators. The APS capital budget invests over $1.3 billion in capital projects into the local
economy of Albuquerque & Bernalillo County NM every 6 years and has major impacts to the build
environment, land tenure, transportation patterns and residential trends of the region. Concurrency
with local municipalities is critical
