Charting a New Course Through Shared Partnerships
Manchester Proud is excited to be working with the Manchester School District (MSD) to amplify the impact of its ongoing work with Community Partners. Manchester is fortunate to have a robust network of partners who care deeply about MSD students and families.
Back in February 2020, the Manchester Board of School Committee (BOSC) approved a plan from Manchester Proud titled Our Community’s Plan for Manchester’s Future of Learning: Excellence and Equity for all Learners, which identified the need to take a more systematic approach to community partnerships. The resulting process aims to provide a clear, transparent pathway to becoming a community partner of the School District, and to then amplify the work of the partner so it’s broadly known across students, families, school staff, and the community-at-large.
Partnering with MSD connects new partners with the robust network already in place, and allows for networking and idea-sharing opportunities across the City. MSD also looks to community partners when it’s looking to solve complex issues, and on occasion will enter into grants or other funding opportunities should they be mutually beneficial.
