Supporting New Mexico’s Charter Schools

The Association for Charter School Educational Services, or ACES, is a public entity approved by the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration, to provide services and support to New Mexico charter schools.

ACES provides services, support, and technical assistance to New Mexico’s charter schools. Operating through a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA), and approved by the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration, charter schools that are members of ACES can take advantage of cooperative purchasing of goods and services.  By joining together, charter schools can lower their operating costs and put those savings back into their classrooms.

Cost Effectiveness

By sharing resources and combining services, charter schools — and their taxpayers — can get a better product or service, save time, and save money. The cost savings from participating in ACES go back into the classroom to increase student achievement. The greatest advocacy tool a charter school can have is the increased academic performance of their students.

Operational Efficiency

ACES provides the efficient use of education funding by sharing resources, participating in the costs of services, and taking advantage of reduced pricing.

A Letter from the NM ACES President

November 2, 2018

Notification of Vacancy

It is with great regret that I notify you of the resignation of Dr. Bruce Hegwer as our Executive Director, effective December 31, 2018. He has been our leader since day one. During the last five years, Bruce has established an entity that helps charter schools in so many ways! Bruce intends to continue his work with ACES, just not in the role of Executive Director.

Following the ACES Bylaws as a guide to seek new leadership, we are looking for a part-time, salaried person. We have notified the existing 80+ members, PED, NMCCS, and NMSBA of the opening. I would appreciate you sharing this with those you know might be interested. It is a wonderful opportunity for someone that wants to give back to New Mexico education. Please see the vacancy notice below and call me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your ACES membership! Sincerely,
Doreen Winn, Executive Committee President
