Partnership Program

Welcome to our Partnership Page!

Our high-quality schools are one of many reasons Durango is one of the best places in the nation to live. To continue to offer incredible learning and enrichment opportunities to our students, we recognize that community support is vital. Strong, collaborative relationships with families, the community and our schools generate positive educational and social outcomes for our students while also benefiting the community.

It is important that our partnerships are reciprocal, and together we can help each other reach our goals and continue to support our community.

Partnership Goals:
•To increase resources and services through partnerships to supplement curriculum and offer a more comprehensive learning experience

•To create ongoing connections and relationships with approved community partners who share their expertise and resources with students, in and out of the school setting, which directly enhances learning in relevant, meaningful and authentic ways

•To provide our students and their family's access to programs or services that will support their emotional, social, and physical growth throughout the educational process to help ensure academic success

•To have and maintain a mechanism for community partners and our schools to share their expertise and services with one another

The Partnership Program:
The school district offers several avenues for partnerships that include differing benefits and opportunities based on your level of partnership with the school district. Please take a moment to review our partnership policy guide. Once you have had the opportunity to review that, we encourage you to submit your Partnership Application. Please allow us up to two weeks (excluding holidays) to review your application. Special note: for the safety of our students and staff, Durango School District board policy requires all regular volunteers to register and undergo a background check, minimally. Depending on the program offering, additional requirements may follow.

Ultimately, we want our partnerships to benefit our students, our community and our partners. For more detailed examples of these benefits, see the Benefits of School/Community Partnerships document.

For more information about Community Partnerships, you may contact the Communications Department at 247-5411, ext. 1427 or via email at partnerships@durango.k12.co.us.
