Please take 10 minutes to give the NMPED feedback on the Martinez and Yazzie consolidated lawsuit (Martinez/Yazzie).

The NMPED's strategy to move forward with Martinez/Yazzie is focused on creating an effective and equitable education system with supports for all students focused on root-cause analysis, equity-focused leadership and continuous improvement, and culturally and linguistically responsive curriculum (CLR) and pedagogy.

To help achieve the goals listed above, districts and charter schools must initially concentrate on the development of the following:

1. establishment of equity councils at each district and charter school;

2. completion of a Martinez and Yazzie Readiness Assessment and equity plan to support schools;

3. implementation of a CLR framework for every school; and

4. submission and implementation of 90-day plans through the New Mexico Data, Accountability, Sustainability, and High Achievement tool (NMDASH) with a specific focus on economically disadvantaged students, Native American students, English learners, and students with disabilities. As well as the implementation of the New Mexico Spotlight system to track annual progress.

Question Title

* 1. NMDASH: Progress Monitoring and School Transformation Online Planning Tool. The NMPED’s core value of reflection and continuous improvement is a driver for the systemic shift to ensure that diversity, equity and inclusion are further incorporated into our cycles of improvement and practices.

The NMDASH is one of the tools that will be used to support districts and charter schools in this work, along with the implementation of the New Mexico Spotlight System to track annual progress.

NMDASH, the state’s online school planning tool, will include a functionality for addressing the needs of at-risk students, including those who are economically disadvantaged, Native American, English learners, or students with disabilities through root-cause analysis. The NMPED initially has selected certain schools currently implementing the Principals Pursuing Excellence program to implement this new NMDASH function, with full implementation in all schools planned for the 2020-2021 school year.

Through submission of one annual and two 90-day plans, districts and charter schools must build leadership capacity to implement and sustain effective evidence-based practices to serve at-risk students with resource allocation aligned to programmatic practices.
