When schools, community, faith-based and other organizations collaborate, everyone benefits, especially students.
Sharing resources among partners increases the services a learning center offers and balances each partner's responsibilities.
Beginning a partnership involves aligning program needs — and those of students, families and the school community — to available community resources. Strong partnerships establish a program's direction with ongoing communication.
You and your partners will want to know how well the partnership's operations contributed to student and family outcomes. To do this, you will need to collect and make sense of data that can guide your next steps as a partnership.
