    Adopt A School Program

    PURPOSE & GOAL 


    The Adopt-A-School Program was created to support public schools throughout the county through enhanced educational experiences, financial support and volunteerism focused on improving outcomes for students. The goal is to ensure all of our schools are adopted by a business, community or interfaith partner by the start of the 2019-2020 school year. 

    PROGRAM COMPONENTS


    College & Career Exposure
    – Expose students to college/career pathways through field trips, career day or mentoring sessions.

    Financial Support – Provide at least $5,000 through in-kind donations and/or monetary contributions (per adopted school).

    Volunteer Service – Participate in at least one school-sponsored service activity.
