The Importance of Strategic Partners in the Schools
RYSS ISD school-business partnerships are created to be mutually beneficial, long-term relationships
that provide value to both the campus and the company. Strategic Partnerships are designed to give
our business community the opportunity to donate their time and effort to support our students and staff.
These relationships create a bond between the school and the community partner that truly enrich and
benefit our children and school. Many businesses realize that our students are the future workforce of this
country and abroad, so investing in our young scholars is a win-win opportunity.
The following factors determine who we partner with:
Both business and school actively participate in the partnership: Campus and business
representatives lead the way in developing the partnership relationship, staying in touch with one
another, and creating opportunities to expand the partnership.
We put people first: Our partnerships are relationship driven. School-Business Partners make
every effort to personally engage with their partner campuses, and to volunteer when possible.
Campuses make every effort to include business partners in campus activities, and they welcome
interaction with partner employees.
We respect one another's organizational purpose and guidelines: Schools and businesses
understand one another's core values and purpose. They seek common ground between the two
while operating within one another's guidelines.
We love to create new partnership opportunities: Our partnerships are innovative
and always remain open to new ideas. A win-win partnership is the ideal model.
