Partners in Education

The Partners in Education program supports collaborative efforts between schools and our community that promote academic success and personal growth for the division's students. Community partners from businesses, military commands, faith-based groups and civic organizations work with schools to design innovative educational opportunities to meet the unique needs of students and schools. By matching school goals with the expertise, expanded materials and financial resources and skills of the community organization, partnerships enrich curriculum and enhance learning experiences, extend teachers' capacity to meet the individual needs of all students and improve communication between the schools and the community.

Community engagement not only makes a positive impact on education, helping to relate academic learning to real-world applications, but it also demonstrates that the community values education and is committed to helping prepare students with the foundation they need to be successful today and into adulthood.
