Registration for the October 2022 Advancement Program for Level I-II (APLI-II) is now CLOSED. We appreciate the positive response to this new program. An announcement will be made in late fall for the January 2023 registration window.

Starting in fall 2022, the requirements to advance from a Level I to Level II license will begin to transition from the use of dossiers to the Advancement Program for Level I-Level II (APLI-II). APLI-II is made up of a series of five micro-credentials (Classroom Environment, Multi-Layered Systems of Support, Assessment Literacy, Culturally Linguistically Responsive Instruction, and Family Engagement).

A micro-credential is a competency-based process that is made up of several small “stacked” courses, each focused on a discrete skill or area aligned with the four domains in Elevate NM, the educator evaluation system.

The micro-credential is earned when the stacked courses have been successfully completed, and the educator has demonstrated mastery of the skill or area with a score of 85% or higher. The successful completion of each micro credential will make an educator eligible to progress to the next micro-credential.

Upon completing all five micro-credential courses (mastery 85% or higher) an educator will be eligible to apply for a Level II license upon completing three full school years of teaching experience (minimum of 160 days per year) with successful annual evaluations.
