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.
Our very successful BBVA Blue Elf event could not be held without the help of our dedicated partners and community friends. Through the generous support of BBVA, our students most in need received a warm meal and gifts bags for Christmas. One Tejano Center family that was severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey was surprised by Mark Montgomery, BBVA Houston CEO, with a new washer and dryer.
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 an ideal model.
