Conditions Development of strong relationships with Albuquerque's strong network of early childhood leaders and providers Neighborhood Leadership Teams build individual and neighborhood capacities that support young children and their families and help community schools become early childhood resources Community school development at the site level focused on intentional community engagement outside of school building ABC-CSP model that was developed places community at forefront of decision-making process Board engagement and understanding of ABC potential Those who had already been implementing community school strategies felt that the selection of four "new" schools ignored their needs and experiences Unclear leadership, clarity of roles, and vision to move system work forward Lack of communication between system and site levels hindered trust and a cohesive vision for moving forward Distraction created by courting a funder such as WKKF Site level work distracted focus on system level develop
Site selection was perhaps premature Lack of trust between CBOs and schools resulted in lack of buy-in for a lead partner CS model ABC has embraced a challenge few others have attempted to tackle in Albuquerque.
