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. The Superintendent’s/Charter School Executive Director’s equity councils are the local-level team that will help inform the district/charter school's actions and solutions in response to the Martinez/Yazzie.

The equity councils will lead the completion of the Martinez/Yazzie Readiness Assessment to determine how they are serving and leveraging funds for the students named in Martinez/Yazzie, as well as the implementation of the Indian Education Act, Hispanic Education Act, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and Office for Civil Rights for English Learners. The template for the Readiness Assessment will be provided to school districts and charter schools in early 2020.

Then, based on the completed Martinez/Yazzie Readiness Assessment, the Superintendent’s/Charter School Executive Director’s equity councils will lead the district/charter school's creation of an equity plan. The equity plan will focus on supporting school transformation to align with the NMPED’s goals in implementing the court’s decision on Martinez/Yazzie. A template for the equity plan will be provided to school districts and charter schools by early 2020.
