Supporting School & District Leaders

We support school and district leaders in strengthening their leadership and creating conditions for adults and students to thrive in their education ecosystems. 

Among our priorities in this realm are advocating for changes to the principal licensure programs, building communities of practice for resources sharing, and strengthening mentorships of new principals.


The Inquiry Science Education Consortium: ISEC initiated early alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards and supported the state in advocating for its NM Stem Ready! Science Standards. The curriculum focuses on physical and earth sciences.

We are dedicated to increasing equity and access to quality STEM education in Northern New Mexico. Experience and research tell us that to move the needle in education, we must engage our students in innovative, student-centered learning that is real and multifaceted while valuing individual critical thinking.
