Performance Framework 2024-05-13T09:21:58-06:00

New Mexico Statutes Annotated 1978 (NMSA) Section 22-8B-9.1 requires all public chartering authorities to establish a framework that clearly sets forth the academic and operational performance indicators and performance targets that guide the chartering authority’s evaluation of each charter school.

In 2019, the Public Education Commission (PEC) adopted the Charter Performance Review and Accountability System to guide their oversight of state-chartered schools. In 2022, the PEC adopted a slightly revised version of the 2019 performance framework. In 2023, after more than a year reviewing national best practices in charter school authorizing, the PEC adopted a completely new performance framework.

Current charter school contracts contain one of the three PEC performance frameworks listed below:

  • 2019 Performance Framework: adopted by the PEC in 2019; included in contracts of schools that begin prior to July 1, 2022.
  • 2022 Performance Framework: slightly modified version of the 2019 Performance Framework, adopted by the PEC in 2022; included in contracts of schools that begin July 1, 2022, or July 1, 2023.
  • 2023 Performance Framework: entirely new Performance Framework adopted by the PEC in 2023 (with modifications in 2024) after more than a year of study by a working group of Commissioners in consultation with national experts; included in contracts of schools that begin on July 1, 2024.

Ancillary Documents for 2023 Performance Framework:

School districts that authorize charter schools have their own performance frameworks.

Student outcome data used to evaluate schools on the academic performance framework is available on the NM Vistas website.
