Instructional Material Bureau


New Mexico Statute requires that each local school board of a school district and each governing authority of a state institution or private school acquiring instructional material pursuant to the Instructional Material Law shall file a report with the department that includes an itemized list of instructional material purchased by the eligible entity, by vendor; the total cost of the instructional material; the average per-student cost; and the year-end cash balance. (NMSA 22-15-12 Annual Report)

The Instructional Material Bureau is responsible for enforcing requirements of the Instructional Material Law. The Instructional Material Bureau may withdraw or withhold the privilege of participating in the free use of instructional material in case of any violation of or noncompliance with the provisions of the Law, which includes the requirement to submit an annual report and listing of instructional material purchased. If your school received a 14/15 allocation, you are required to submit a 14/15 Annual Report, even if you have not made expenditures for the year.

  1. WHEN: All school districts, state and local charters, BIE and non-public schools must submit an annual report to the Instructional Material Bureau no later than Saturday, August 1, 2015.
  2. FORMAT: Download the appropriate form from the Instructional Material Bureau web page at http://ped.state.nm.us/InstructionalMaterial/index.html and by clicking on your appropriate link for your appropriate Annual Report form:
