NMPED has developed a licensure advancement system for teachers in the 3-Tiered Licensure System. Teachers may complete the Professional Development Dossier (PDD) or NMTEACH Summative Evaluation application in order to advance from Level I to Level II and to advance from Level II to Level III.  A teacher may start the process of advancing after the third year of experience by completing either a dossier or advancing via summative evaluation. Please meet with your NM school district as the will give the initial approval and recommendation.
