NM PED is proposing rules that will change HB 130. This bill was passed and signed into law just last year expanding the school year to 1,140 hours. The new PED mandate would force all calendars to include at least 180 instructional days per school year, cutting important features of HB 130 like Parent Teacher Conferences being recognized as instructional time. Speak out NOW. Send your emails to: Rule.Feedback@ped.nm.gov.
