Our School Partnerships Team is charged with leveraging external resources that impact student achievement. Specifically, we are looking for resources that add value, are aligned with our stated needs and have an academic impact. Additionally, we are determined to ensure that resources are distributed equitably across the District.
Ways to Become a DCPS Partner
- Submit a New Partner Interest Form—this option is best for organizations that have a specific interest area and are looking for general guidance on how to begin a partnership with DCPS schools. The School Partnerships Team will review all submissions and follow up with next steps.
- Join the Adopt-a-School Program—we recommend this program for community and business groups interested in a structured approach to supporting schools. It is best suited for groups that are flexible on how their resources are leveraged to support student and school needs, and are open to collaborating with the school in an on-going basis.
- Become an afterschool provider—organizations interested in providing after-school programming must go through a thorough vetting process before being selected to provide services in our schools. For more information, visit our Afterschool Programs page.
