The Public Education Department is removing the requirement to report in Canvas all elements of Elevate New Mexico for school year 2021-2022. [Click HERE to read the full memo]

We hope this change eases some of the stress you and your staff are feeling amid another school year impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and allows for flexibility as needed. We know you will continue to provide your teachers with the supports they need to feel successful in the classroom and to improve outcomes for all students. Some best practices might be to focus solely on early career educators or those educators who have a professional growth plan for this academic year.

LEAs and Charters may keep using the elements provided in Canvas as you continue to support teachers in their growth for the remainder of the year. However, the requirement to report has been removed.
