In the 2014-15 school year, Albuquerque Public Schools served 88,122 students: 77% being students of color and 68% eligible for free or reduced price lunch. The same year Partners completed a Kellogg supported project in Albuquerque Public Schools, providing leadership and professional development for six schools: Kit Carson, Mazano Mesa, Pajarito, Ernie Pyle, Emerson and La Mesa.

The intensive network sessions produced hugely encouraging results. The number of essential practices implemented systematically across our Albuquerque partner schools increased in just one year of partnership, with 100% of network participants describing the overall quality of the sessions as good or excellent.

The early promise of the partnership between Indianola and Partners in School Innovation was unequivocally and effectively fulfilled. School and district leaders were pushed to take on new learning, to plan more effectively with student outcomes at the center of our decision-making, and to use our data not just to understand student needs, but to improve our pedagogical practices. I repeatedly heard leaders describe their work as the best supports they had experienced in, what has been for some, many careers.
