Partners In Education
All 25 schools in the district as well as several school programs and school PTAs have one or more business or community partners. Many businesses have entered into partnerships with more than one school and most offer to assist with any school and program when and where needed and when and where possible. These multiple partnerships include more than 600 relationships with almost 400 businesses and individuals. Since partnerships are planned and developed according to the needs and priorities of the individual school and partner organizations, each partnership differs and activities vary. Information about partnership programs and activities is available from the Partners in Education School Liaison at your local school, or at Dorchester School District Two.
