Welcome to the Office of Strategic Partnerships. Our mission is to improve the way the District and schools engage with the many outside organizations that offer programming and services at no cost to the District or schools.
The key functions of our office include assisting schools in identifying key need areas where partners can provide support, connecting schools with partners that match their needs, and serving as a liaison between partners, schools, and departments within the School District of Philadelphia’s central office.
On this website, partners can find information about how to form new partnerships and support existing ones. We encourage you to explore the various documents that are available here, including the new Onboarding Guide, which consolidates relevant information about policies and procedures related to the work of partners in schools.
