2024 ESSA Plan Amendments

The New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) is undertaking a revision of our consolidated state plan under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) as one of the levers that the state agency will use to support a renewed vision and mission of education throughout New Mexico. As we begin to revise our ESSA state plan, we are reaching out to you for your active engagement in feedback.

We want to leverage your expertise as New Mexicans—our students, parents, teachers, school leaders, Tribes, business leaders, and community members. All of the information you share will be leveraged to ensure our approach represents the educational values of New Mexicans. Click here to access the 2024 ESSA Amendment page.
