Accountability Committee Cancels May 23 Meeting

(Santa Fe, NM)-The New Mexico State Board of Education's (SBE) Accountability Committee has canceled its Thursday, May 23, meeting to be held from 8:00 a.m. to noon at the Fechin Inn in Taos. "Input from State Board members and school districts supports the need to postpone. The State Department of Education staff needs to gather more information in response to questions arising from the Terra Nova and the board wants to allow time for gathering that information," said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Michael J. Davis.

As a result of the cancellation, the SBE's retreat, previously scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, will begin at 9:00 a.m. The retreat, to be held at the Fechin Inn, located at 227 Paseo del Pueblo Norte in Taos, will continue through 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 24. The focus of the retreat is to develop the process for evaluating the state superintendent of public instruction.
