Business Partners


A Business Partnership is a mutually supportive arrangement between a business and a school (or school district), in which the partner and the school commit to specific goals and activities, intended to enhance educational opportunities to benefit students and/or teachers. The Public Education Foundation effectuates this process in the form of an agreement called the Business Partnership Agreement.

The focus of partnerships differs for each company and school, but all partnerships share a common commitment to improving education. Individual schools and their community partners develop activities at their own pace, consistent with their needs and resources.  Schools and Business Partners are invited to attend an annual breakfast to collaborate for each new school year.

The partner may be a business, service organization, governmental agency, association, community group, faith-based organization or institution of higher education. An applicant whose mission, product or service is in conflict with the objectives of the Marion County School system or whose product or service is not legally available to minors will not be approved as a business partner.
