Next week marks the start of the 2017-18 school year for the School District of Philadelphia.

Last summer, Vicki Ellis, executive director of the district’s Office of Strategic Partnerships, and Donna Frisby-Greenwood, president and CEO of The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia, spoke about wanting to bring on more impact organizations and nonprofits to offer much-needed services to schools.

Well, the Office of Strategic Partnerships is making it a little easier for those groups to help out, thanks to its School Partner Onboarding Guide.

The guide covers what’s required of organizations that want to become school partners, how to become a partner by first completing a partner inquiry form, what existing partners need to do, as well as more of the nitty gritty details like how to get your organization to become an approved field trip site.

Some of the more standout details for those who are interested in becoming partners include the fact that the Office of Strategic Partnerships has a specific vested interest in aligning partner resources with school district needs that match up with the first two anchor goals detailed in Superintendent Dr. William Hite’s 2015-released Action Plan 3.0.:

  • Every Philly student will graduate high school ready for college and a career
  • Every Philly 8-year-old will be able to read at grade level

That means if your kind of work focuses on early literacy or college and career readiness, now would be a great time to consider becoming a partner.
