NM Proposes Tougher Accountability Rules

NM Proposes Tougher Accountability Rules

November 10, 2018

According to Shelby Perea in the Albuquerque Journal, in the final weeks of Governor Susana Martinez’ tenure, the state Public Education Department is proposing a number of rule changes, including for school accountability and interventions. If approved, the potential regulatory shift “would put parts of the state’s Every Student Succeeds Act plan into rule—a point of argument made in an appeal by Albuquerque Public Schools earlier this year.” Additionally, it would “limit which schools could opt out of the standardized A-F school grading calculations.”
