The core values of the Identity, Equity and Transformation Division (IET) are the very foundation on which all agency work is built. We share an agency-wide laser focus on students, families, communities, programs and social justice. IET works in close partnership with all NMPED divisions to create conditions to stand up our vision and live our mission across the great state of New Mexico.
IET houses Indian Education Division, Special Education Division, Language and Culture Division and Charter Schools/Options for Families Division. Leadership and oversight of all state and federal education acts also lives under the IET umbrella.
Anti-Racism Anti-Oppression Hotline
Students, families, and community members can report school-based incidents of racial bias by calling the Anti-Racism Anti-Oppression Hotline, maintained by the Public Education Department in compliance with the Black Education Act, HB43. The hotline is open to anyone and can be used to report incidents of racism, injustice, or discrimination against anyone in a school setting.
