Community Schools

A Community School builds partnerships between the school and other community resources. Community Schools also act 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 ABC Community School Partnership and Board

The ABC Community School Partnership was established (through a Joint Powers Agreement) in order to support the development of community schools. The members of the ABC Community School Partnership are:

  • Albuquerque Public School District, founding member of the Partnership
  • APS Leadership and Board members, voting members of the Partnership Board

The ABC Board is lead by representatives from:

  • Albuquerque Public Schools
  • Bernalillo County
  • City of Albuquerque
  • Albuquerque Business Education Compact
  • United Way of Central New Mexico, and
  • New Mexico Community Foundation

Community School Governance

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