Based on the premise of involving communities in education, Taos School Zone (TSZ) is a collective-impact partnership between nonprofits, public and charter schools, and members of the community. It leverages the power of collaboration, scale, and data-based decision-making to responsively address areas of greatest student need. TSZ is the backbone organization for this collaboration.


The School Zone utilizes four strategic interventions:

  • Collaboration Among Community Groups

  • Teacher Support and Development

  • Parent/caregiver Engagement

  • Commitment to Measured Outcomes


TSZ engages teachers, school leaders, students, parents and members of the community side by side with Taos schools as they work to improve outcomes for our children. We are a special project of Taos Community Foundation.
