New Mexico Public Education Department: High-Quality Professional Learning Marketplace ListDeadline: January 29, 2021
The New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) Instructional Material Bureau seeks to create a list of professional learning providers that will be a resource for local education agencies (LEAs) seeking third-party partners to support their professional learning needs. Professional Learning providers seeking to apply should support LEAs in their implementation of high-quality instructional materials for Grades K-12 Mathematics, Science, Art, and Career and Technical Education; Grades 9-12 English Language Arts, Spanish Language Arts, English Language Development, and World Languages; and Grades K-2 Structured Literacy. Applicants will be vetted for their alignment with different aspects of New Mexico’s current academic landscape including New Mexico Content Standards, and support of the use of high-quality instructional materials.
The High-Quality Professional Learning (HQPL) Marketplace List will serve as a guide and a tool for district leadership to select from vetted, aligned, high-quality Professional Learning provider programs. The list aims to recommend providers and programs that support instructional materials from the New Mexico Adopted Multiple List, and to provide relevant data for informed decision making in LEAs’ selection processes. PED is particularly interested in providers that can show evidence-based strategies and evidence-based results for their Professional Learning programs.
Amount: The award will entail inclusion on PED’s Professional Learning list of providers, and promotion as a high-quality option for LEAs in New Mexico.
Eligibility: Local and national Professional Learning provider organizations that can support implementation of high-quality instructional materials for:
- Grades K-12 Mathematics, Science, Art, and Career and Technical Education;
- Grades 9-12 English Language Arts, Spanish Language Arts, English Language Development, and World Languages; and
- Grades K-2 Structured Literacy.
