ATF Essential and Related Service EducatorsCareer Pathway Support


In 2002, the NM State Legislature created a 3-Tiered Licensure System for licensed teachers. But only for teachers.

Left out were essential colleagues: Counselors, Social Workers, Nurses, Interpreters, OTs, PTs, OMTs, SLPs, and Audiologists.

While the 3-Tiered Licensure System guaranteed a significant increase in salaries for teachers, the state also required increased professional responsibilities. In order to advance, teachers were required to demonstrate their competence through the Professional Development Dossier.

It required many years of advocacy before ATF leaders developed the concept of a Career Pathway Support (CPS)—unique in New Mexico—and successfully negotiated an agreement with APS for its implementation. Thanks to our union’s tenacity over many years all Essential Services and Support Educators (E&RSE), including COTAs and PTAs, in APS have a way to advance in their careers and have gained hundreds of thousands more dollars in income!

Beginning October 1, 2019, the Career Pathway System portfolio submission process will be on-line. All documents from the Intent to Submit to the Portfolio Submission form, including your portfolio will be submitted on-line to cps@atfunion.org. Updates for this process will be sent out through the Essential and Related Service Educators list serve.
