Taos County now boasts four community schools: Enos Garcia Elementary, Vista Grande Charter High School, Taos International Charter School, and Peñasco Elementary. All received $150,000 implementation grants from NMPED to support becoming community schools, an evidence-based strategy for incorporating social services and enrichment programs to help support the whole child and their family. TSZ is proud to have initiated this work in the Taos community.

TSZ is convening three cohorts--early childhood, K-12, and post-secondary/career--consisting of schools, nonprofits and employers working with those age groups, to develop shared goals to collaborate toward in the short and long terms. This is the collective impact work that will bring together Taos resources to create better outcomes for Taos kids. More information will be available in the Fall.

TSZ's nonprofit asset map can now be accessed at www.taosnonprofits.org. More than 70 Taos nonprofits working with schoolchildren and their families have completed surveys to participate in this project designed to be a resource for parents, teachers, and local nonprofits.
