Business & Community Partners: Business partnerships 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 the identified needs of the individual schools. Schools, in turn, provide resources to meet the 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: School partnerships are designed for businesses or organizations to become involved in a particular classroom or school-sponsored event. There are multiple ways for business to partner with their local school. Reach out to the Family and Community Liaison at a particular school to learn more.
