K-3 Plus LogoThe purpose of K–5 Plus is to demonstrate that increased time in kindergarten and the early grades narrows the achievement gap between at-risk students and other students, increases cognitive skills and leads to higher test scores for all participants.

The program extends the school year for K–5 by 25 instructional days beginning before school starts. The K–5 Plus program provides funding for additional educational time for students in kindergarten through fifth grade in elementary schools. K–5 Plus must be offered school wide and teachers and cohorts are required to remain together for the remainder of the school year after the K-5 Plus program.

For Summer 2020 NMPED also offers the K-12 Plus Pilot program which offers select flexibilities.
