Volunteer partners include for-profit businesses, non-profit agencies, and local organizations. The goal of each collaboration is to directly and positively strengthen the learning environment for students. The School and Community Partnership Program is part of the District’s Volunteer Services Program and is coordinated through the Community Relations Department.
“The School and Community Partnership Program invites businesses and organizations to enrich schools by donating time, expertise, materials, and funds,” noted Marcia Hughes, Community Relations Supervisor. “We are grateful for the many and varied contributions they make to support our students and staff. Our annual recognition event is an opportunity to spotlight the generous volunteer partner organizations that go above and beyond on behalf of our schools.”
Honorees were recognized for contributions made during the 2014-15 school year as identified by the school principal. Learn more about our partners by clicking here
