ECECD Launches Pay Parity Program for PreK Educators


SANTA FE – Today, the New Mexico Early Childhood Education and Care Department (ECECD) announced that it has launched a new program to establish pay parity between New Mexico PreK teachers and their counterparts working in public schools. PreK teachers and directors who hold a bachelors or master’s degree in a qualifying degree field and who currently work in a NM PreK, early PreK, or mixed-age PreK classroom at a community-based program can now apply to receive a monthly supplement to their income that better aligns their pay with PED salary scales for public school teachers.
