Tyler ISD Partnership Program
The Tyler ISD Partnership Program can help you connect with many wonderful opportunities available throughout the District. Thank you in advance for your generous support and commitment as we work to reshape the face of education and provide a brighter future for our students.
What is a Partnership?
Education Partnerships are cooperative relationships between businesses or organizations and schools. Working through multiple strategies, education partnerships ensure that youth complete their education prepared to be responsible citizens who significantly contribute to the economic, civic and social environment in which they live and work. Partnerships are designed to strengthen a student’s knowledge of the outside world and to show students that volunteering keeps communities functioning.
Who Can Become a Partner?
Any business or service organization with a desire to make a difference in the lives of students is a potential partner. Partners represent a variety of industries; such as banking, retail, medical, religious and non-profit organizations. For example, banks may operate a student savings account program and medical offices may provide educational resources or awareness materials to students and their families. Many retail businesses offer product incentives, donate items for campus special events or initiate donation drives.
Businesses and organizations of all sizes can be effective partners and each partnership is individualized to meet the needs of the campus. Some businesses may prefer serving at the elementary level, while others may be better suited for the secondary level. Potential partners work together with the District and campus to create the best partnership possible.
