  • Assessment design and analysis for all assigned courses. Highly effective use of informal and formal assessments to inform students, faculty, and families of academic progress and individual needs. Grades are updated weekly.
  • Student Advisory, "College Crew," planning and implementation. All full-time faculty collaboratively design a grade-level College Crew course to support students attaining college and career readiness.
  • Parent/family engagement and communication. In College Crew, parents are contacted weekly as needed to communicate concerns regarding attendance and academics. For all courses, faculty are required to utilize digital communication tools such as Canvas, Remind, Deans List, and PowerSchool to inform students and families of course expectations and progress.
  • Professional collaboration and learning. All faculty are reflective practitioners regularly participating in professional learning, departmental, and grade-level team meetings. Weekly participation in a collaborative planning setting is typical.
  • Personalized learning and support for all students. In a rigorous, college prep environment all students are supported to achieve their highest potential. All faculty regularly collaborate with their IEP teams, case managers, and EL support staff to implement highly effective individualized education plans for students with exceptional learning and language needs.
  • Co-curricular and extra-curricular engagement with students. ATC employs a flexible learning time to provide students with academic support and enrichment activities. Faculty typically sponsor or supervise such activities three times per week.
  • School operations. All faculty assist in the orderly operation of the school, equitably apply and adhere to school policies/procedures, and perform supervisory duties weekly.

Please contact the New Mexico Public Education Department's Licensure Bureau to verify state reciprocity requirements. Pre-service candidates should demonstrate enrollment in/completion of alternative licensure programming that qualifies the candidate for provisional New Mexico licensing.
