Solutions for Agencies in New Mexico
In New Mexico, providers are using Agency Workforce Management solutions to help oversee a wide range of tasks. MITC works with agencies providing employment, day, residential, family support, personal support, respite, and other services for individuals with developmental disabilities or behavioral health needs in New Mexico.
What’s Going On In New Mexico
- The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Andrew F. v. Douglas County School; New Mexico Crisis and Access Line Connecting More people to Needed Services and Support District is a victory for New Mexicans seeking special education and related services for children with disabilities.
- The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires states receiving funds to educate children with disabilities provide a “free appropriate public education” (FAPE). Prior to the Court’s March 22, 2017 decision, schools providing FAPE in New Mexico and other States governed by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals (Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Utah, and Wyoming) were only required to provide “some educational benefit,” or an “educational benefit merely. . . more than de minimus.”
- In Andrew F. v. Douglas County School District, the U.S. Supreme Court expanded the existing standard for FAPE. To meet the standard of a FAPE, the Court required that the IEP “must be appropriately ambitious in light of [the child’s] circumstances,” and acknowledged “every child should have the chance to meet challenging objectives.” Notably, the Court emphasized the FAPE standard “is markedly more demanding than the ‘merely more than de minimus’ test applied
by the Tenth Circuit.”
