Mission Statement

The Office of Strategic Partnerships collaborates with schools, District offices, and partner organizations to help foster trusting and purposeful relationships that contribute to school communities where students thrive.


    1. Collect data from school leaders annually on schools’ needs for partnerships to drive:
      • Alignment of existing partnerships to school needs and District priorities
      • Matching of partners with schools to address inequities in resource distribution
      • Development of new partnerships
    2. Clarify and update District processes to make it easier for partner programs and schools to establish sustainable partnerships.
    3. Deliver professional development to school-based staff focused on partnership coordination.
    4. Promote the District’s commitment to equity and anti-racism by providing guidance and resources to partner organizations.
    5. Facilitate connections between District offices and partner organizations to strengthen relationships and align partner programs to the District’s content area goals (e.g. Arts,  STEM).
