Partners In Education, Inc. helps schools and businesses develop partnerships that support schools and students. The parties commit to specific activities intended to benefit students, improve student achievement and accomplish school improvement goals. A partnership is initiated in two ways:
(1) a school recruits a partner from the business community, or
(2) a prospective partner contacts either Partners In Education or an individual school.
Businesses, government agencies and community-based organizations are eligible to become partners and do not need district approval. Rather, any restriction on a partnership is based on the appropriateness of the proposed activities. Each partnership shall comply with State and Federal law as well as all policies and guidelines established by both the School Board and the individual school. In addition, all individuals involved in a partnership are required to complete the Volunteer Application prior to working with students.
