Equity Councils 2023-11-06T01:53:31-07:00

The NMPED established the Equity Council requirement for all districts and charter schools in the state to ensure that the important work of the Martinez and Yazzie Lawsuit was carried out by the experts at the local level.

The NMPED is committed to the work of providing resources and guidance to districts and charters through an “accountability with support” model. This means that the NMPED is building the foundation for equitable spending and allocation of resources through the work of the Equity Councils as advisories to school boards, superintendents, charter school executive directors, and governing bodies through the data collected in the Martinez and Yazzie Readiness Assessment.
