The New Mexico Public Education Department is launching a three-year training initiative for 10 high schools in the state. The schools chosen by PED are: West Mesa, Belen, Bernalillo, Cuba, Española Valley, Rocinante, Miyamura, Gilbert L Sena Charter, Health Leadership and Las Montanas Charter high schools. PED picked the schools, which were identified for Comprehensive Support and Improvement or CSI, to be the first to partake in the inaugural New Mexico High School Redesign Network. Secretary-designate Christopher Ruszkowski said the program aims to help the schools move out of CSI, a category for low-performing schools. One of the main goals of the redesign network is to help raise graduation rates, as the schools’ rates are below 67 percent.
