Business and Community Partnerships

  • Facing the Future Together

    Pinellas County Schools believes that partnerships transform the educational landscape for student success.
    Partnerships are developed to provide support, services, and opportunities to improve student learning, stronger families and healthier communities. Schools are preparing students for their entry into a diverse and competitive workforce. Leaders in our community can take part in the education of our students to help strengthen our communities' future. Developing meaningful partnerships is key to meeting the diverse needs of the district, schools, students, parents, and the community.
    Schools and students benefit from partnerships through:
    • Increased student achievement
    • Expanded learning opportunities 
    • Increased student self-confidence 
    • Students' encouragement to stay in school
    • Seeking training after high school 
    • Explore additional employment opportunities after graduation
    • Providing teachers opportunities to access available resources and support from the business community and community organizations.


    Businesses and Community Organizations benefit by:
    • Improving productive relationships with schools.
    • Improving their community image through the publicity and recognition of our partnership.
    • Companies/organization's name and logo can be prominently displayed at school events.
    • Mini-grants can be awarded in a company's name.
    • Companies can fund a specific initiative, such as automotive, technology, the arts, health or more, which can reflect the business's mission and values. 
    • Business and community organizations' contributions will be published in the "Parent's Guide", newspapers and newsletters.
    Becoming a community and business partner is vital to the success of our schools and to the vibrancy of our community.

    2022/2023 Business Partnership Commitment

    Business & Community Partner relationships are ongoing throughout the year and typically involve an entire school. Regular communication, mutual objectives and specific outcomes are part of these relationships. Partnerships match community resources to identified needs of the individual schools. Schools, in turn provide resources to meet identified needs of a particular partner such as a business or community group. These partnerships have proven to be extremely beneficial to student success.
    School or Classroom Partnerships are designed for businesses or organizations to become involved in a particular classroom or school sponsored event.
