Partners in Education
ViPS facilitates the participation of volunteers, businesses, faith partners and community organizations to support our schools. In order for the district to be successful, we need to foster additional partnerships that provide time, in-kind resources and financial contributions to enhance our students’ opportunities.
Partner with us for enhanced student achievement!
Partners support LRSD schools in a variety of ways, such as:
- Tutoring and mentoring students
- Serving as guest speakers
- Sponsoring field trips
- Reading to students
- Supporting after-school programs
- Donating books and classroom supplies
- Providing job shadowing and internship opportunities for students
- Providing incentives for students and teachers
Schools and organizations creating a partnership are required to complete an application and provide a written agenda outlining their partnership plans. The ViPS staff is eager to help guide you through that process! Call us today: 447-ViPS!
