Public Charter Schools of New Mexico provides several events to its members and the charter school community in New Mexico at large. These include Governing Board trainings, our annual conference, regional meetings, and lunch and learn events. Below you’ll see our upcoming offerings. Some events are only open to members.
Governing Board Training
PCSNM is the only Governing Board trainer authorized to offer online governing board training that is “asynchronous” or “on-demand” by the Public Education Department. We have designed the courses to be accessed independently through a Powerpoint presentation video with narrative and accompanying documents. The content can be assessed through Zoom and the link will be emailed to the Governing Board member. To receive credit for the course, the participants will need to complete a required assessment/evaluation via SurveyMonkey.
Asynchronous governing board training is offered for $25 per training hour for members and $50 per training hour for non-members.
