ABC Community School Partnership Report Shows Huge Return on Investment for School Coordinators

09/19/2019

A recent study of the  ABC Community School Partnership shows a $7.11 financial return on investment for every dollar invested in a community school coordinator.

That is $7.11 of direct benefits to students, families and communities at no cost to a school district.

The study was done by the firm Apex to study the effect of a single community school coordinator on Manzano Mesa Elementary School in SE Albuquerque.

The benefits were measured in actual grant dollars, volunteer hours, professional time, programs and in-kind services such as materials, supplies and other physical donations to the school.  The return on investment for the coordinator was calculated over a five-year period  utilizing the net benefits divided by costs, including salaries, benefits and cost of professional development.

The ABC Community School Partnership was founded in 2007 and is a partnership between Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, Albuquerque Public Schools and a number of business and other organizations. There are currently 33 schools in the ABC Community Schools Partnership Community School Network, and the model is expanding across the state of New Mexico.

The ABC Community School Partnership believes that all students will graduate ready for college, career and life. The partnership aims to ensure this by transforming all schools into community schools - schools that support the whole child, family, school and community.
