Practitioners and policy makers from throughout New Mexico convened in Albuquerque in May 2008 for three Roundtable discussions on implementing school-based health services and extended learning opportunities in the state. Several of the Roundtable participants were involved in the New Mexico Community Foundation's Elev8 New Mexico initiative. This statewide initiative is part of a larger national effort to bring together middle school students' extended learning, comprehensive school-based health, and direct family supports and services into a comprehensive and holistic program. This case study builds on initial work conceptualizing the value of school-based services; outlines the challenges and strategies for implementing school-based services that were shared in the Roundtables; and highlights suggestions made by Roundtable participants for implementing these services. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
