New Mexico Excellence in Learning (NMEXL) was formed in 2011 to create a network of leaders from education, business, healthcare, nonprofit, and government organizations to promote excellence in district, school, and student performance through the use of systematic and systemic improvement approaches, such as the Baldrige Education Criteria for Performance Excellence and the AdvancED Accreditation Process.  NMEXL was the initial Performance Excellence Network created by Quality New Mexico and is a strategy for driving improved organizational performance across our State.

New Mexico Excellence in Learning (NMEXL) Program:

  1. Mentorship and coaching on how to effectively use the Criteria for Performance Excellence

  2. Training (either through public workshops or to individual customers) on the various aspects and principles of the Criteria

  3. Assessments, including the assessments associated with the awards program, to provide organizations with an objective third-party view of their strengths and opportunities for improvement

  4. Participation in our annual Learning Summit, which allows organizations to share best practices and learn from those who have effectively used the Criteria around the State and the Nation to achieve best-in-class results.

  5. Recognition at our annual Learning Summit of districts and schools that have demonstrated commitment to and progress in improved performance.

  6. Coordination of strategies to encourage and support districts and schools in the pursuit of systematic and systemic performance improvement

  7. Collecting data on improved student performance to support decision makers across education, government, and other key stakeholder organizations to improve the education system in New Mexico.

How will we know that our products and services are benefiting New Mexico’s educational system?

As NMEXL works with particular schools and districts in New Mexico, we will determine our effectiveness by improvements in the results YOU have designated as keys to success.  Using the Criteria to achieve best-in-class results often takes ten years or so; but significant, measurable improvements that are clear to all stakeholders of our educational system can come in only one or two years.   The key is to demonstrate accelerated progress towards excellence in learning at all levels – student, classroom, school, district, and State.  That’s the goal we want to help you achieve.
