What Is a Business Partnership With Schools?

A school-business partnership is a cooperative relationship between your school district and a local business to:

  • Provide materials, resources and opportunities for students to learn real-life skills.
  • Work toward a community initiative, like mentorships or apprenticeships.
  • Share relevant knowledge and skills with teachers to improve teaching strategies.

Businesses in these partnerships share their time and expertise with students and educators to impart valuable skills. The school district gains new knowledge while strengthening its place in the community. These partnerships allow schools and businesses to work together to benefit students, educators and the region as-a-whole by developing programs or changing systems.
