Community partners bring many forms of support to MPS schools, and on June 6, 2019, the Department of Strategic Partnerships and Customer Service hosted a breakfast to thank its many corporate, Fortune 500, community-based, and faith-based partners. MPS is grateful for the tutoring, scholarships, supply drives, events, in-kind and material donations, and financial support of our partners!
Of the 161 schools in MPS, approximately 120 have at least one partner. A number of these partners participate in the Adopt-a-School model, providing ongoing involvement throughout the school year. More than 40 new or renewed relationships were forged with partners this school year. These partnerships have afforded the district upwards of $750,000 through a variety of pathways.
“As a district, we can’t accomplish every project and fulfill every need alone,” said Superintendent Dr. Keith P. Posley. “Our community is critical to stretch our dollars, resources, and people-power. We are incredibly grateful to all our partners who step up for the students of Milwaukee.”
We acknowledge our partners who were in attendance at our event, and we thank each and every business and community partner that impacts our students. Thank you!
