Important Elevate NM Update–July, 2021

Administrators observing teachers for evaluation purposes in SY21-22 will be required to complete three requirements, two via Canvas–self-paced and one live 3-hour session. 

Step 1: Earn a badge (e-certificate of completion) in our self-paced, asynchronous Elevate NM Training for Administrators Course in Canvas. 

Step 2: Attend one session of the Elevate NM Canvas Training during the week of August 9-13 (10 options available to attend one 3-hour live session). When you have completed the Elevate NM Admin Training course, click this link to register for one 3-hour live session training that is convenient for you:

Step 3: Successfully complete Teacher Evaluation Calibration per state law (in Canvas). You will only be able to access the Calibration once you have completed both the Elevate NM Training Course and attended one (3-hour) live session with Canvas. At the Canvas live training, you will receive information on how to access the Calibration.

NOTE: For SY20-21, the New Mexico Public Education Department generated no Teacher Evaluation. For more information about Elevate NM, please click on the link below.
