The New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) has made available a powerful set of resources for NM teachers and administrators at http://teachnm.org. We encourage you to utilize this website when you have questions about teaching-related issues in order to most quickly find your answers and accomplish your goals!
The section of the TeachNM website on the Professional Development Dossier (PDD) for teachers is accessed by clicking “Experienced Teachers” at the top and then “Professional Development Dossier” - http://teachnm.org/programs/professional-development-dossier/pdd-for-teachers.html
The section of the TeachNM website on SLL is accessed by clicking “Experienced Teachers” at the top and then “Same Level Licensure” - http://teachnm.org/programs/same-level-licensure/sll-for-educators.html
The section of the TeachNM website on the 3-Tiered Licensure System may also be helpful. It is accessed by clicking "Experienced Teachers" at the top and then "3-Tiered Licensure System" - http://teachnm.org/programs/3-tiered-licensure-system.html
To submit a Professional Development Dossier (PDD) or for Same Level Licensure (SLL) renewal on an expired license, you will have to contact the NMPED Licensure Help Desk, who will determine if you are eligible for an extension based on how long you have taught on your license:

If the NMPED grants you an extension, you should be able to submit any time after the July 15th opening.
