Full staff listing

A Community School builds partnerships between the school and other community resources and acts as a location where those partnerships may be utilized.  Community Schools focus on the integration of academics, health and social services, and youth, family and community engagement and development, as a strategy to improve student learning and facilitate stronger families and healthier communities.

The Albuquerque Public School district is a founding member of the ABC Community School Partnership, with APS Leadership and Board members serving as voting members of the Partnership Board.  The ABC Community School Partnership was established (through a Joint Powers Agreement) in order to support the development of community schools.  The ABC Board is lead by representatives from Albuquerque Public Schools, Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, the Albuquerque Business Education Compact, United Way of Central NM, and the New Mexico Community Foundation.

In 2013, the State of New Mexico passed a Community Schools Act and the Albuquerque Teachers Federation adopted a Community School Resolution.
