What was this year like?

It will take you about eight minutes and will offer us critical insight about our areas of strength and areas for growth. This survey will also provide an opportunity to join the NMPED community listserv, where you will receive monthly updates, resources, invitations to engage, and more.

Impact Aid-NM FY 2021

On April 15th GMCS received notification that the State will not be eligible to take credit for Impact Aid in FY21 (current fiscal year). This determination is in response to GMCS’ request for hearing and subsequent filings regarding the State’s submittal in March of 2020. Among other significant issues, the State did not file its request timely to the US Department of Education per federal statute, and their preliminary approval has been revoked by USDOE.
GMCS Board and Administration will continue to work every day to provide necessary resources to assure a quality education for all students.
The State or any adversely impacted LEAs have 60 days to request a hearing related to this ruling.
