The NMPED is excited to announce the launch of our NEW professional development available to all districts, charters, and tribally controlled schools!

Each customized offering provides whole-system vertical support with professional development that promotes accelerated learning practices and enhances instructional best practices through the use of the New Mexico Instructional Scope, Multi-Layered System of Supports (MLSS), and High-Dosage Tutoring. All vendors will work close with district/school leadership to develop a professional development plan that aligns to current needs and schedules.
