As part of the requirements from the Martinez/ Yazzie lawsuit, each school district in New Mexico is required to establish an Equity Council. Membership on this council should have representatives from school leadership, school staff, students, parents or family members, community members, and members of Nations, Tribes, or Pueblos.
We are excited to embrace this opportunity to work toward serving New Mexico students. Your contribution will help us build an equitable, excellent, and relevant educational system by drawing on the strengths of our community. Southwest Secondary and Southwest Preparatory will collaborate on a combined council to serve both schools.
