Across the country, schools are partnering with local community organizations and businesses to help create more successful communities with thriving workforces. When these partnerships work well, businesses can help schools create the pipeline of skilled employees that they will need in their future and businesses can help schools ensure that students graduate both college and career ready.
Here are some examples of successful partnerships between school districts, community organizations and businesses:
