Analysis:

 House Memorial 24 (HM 24) asks the state public education department (PED), with the help of outside experts, to study and  develop a new at-risk index for New Mexico’s public school funding formula. The memorial states the current at-risk index is calculated at the school district level, which does not take into account intra-district variances in demographics and enrollment. HM 24 asks that the new at-risk index be calculated at the school level and take into account demographic data for groups associated with the Martinez and Yazzie v. State of New Mexico lawsuit. 

Copies of the memorial are to be sent to the PED, Legislative Education Study Committee and Legislative Finance Committee.
