2024 ESSA Plan Amendments 2024-04-16T15:41:44-06:00

NMPED 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.

ESSA is the reauthorization of the Federal education law that gives states more flexibility to make decisions that are right for their students and families. Each state develops a plan that describes the state’s direction for a variety of topics, including its long-term goals, how it measures state accountability for its schools, strategies to support its students as well as supports for educators and school leaders, among other requirements. PED’s current state plan was approved on August 9, 2017 and was last amended on March 13, 2020 to accommodate waivers New Mexico received due to COVID-19.

Now more than ever presents an opportunity for us to take stock of what’s working and where there are opportunities to better support each and every learner in New Mexico in order inform our decisions about our revised ESSA state plan.

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. We will update you in late summer of 2024.
