NMPED Dossier Preparation and Coaching

REC Region 9, working under contract with the Educator Quality Bureau of PED, is supporting a statewide initiative to improve the Dossier process. As the NMPED reviews current licensure statutes and rules to improve and streamline the licensure process, they have made the determination to start with a review of the dossier process.

The first step in the process is to revamp the dossier support and review process. This process will become tighter and include positions at RECs around the state to provide support, feedback, and scoring reviews for dossiers submitted in the next window. REC9 wishes to acknowledge the contribution by a great team of NM educators who have supported the review process over the last multiple years. Please contact Cleo Mow of Region 9 at (575) 257-2368 for more information on access to the dossier consultants located around New Mexico.
