Office of Community Partnerships and Engagement


To build broad-based, innovative partnerships that strengthen all ACPS students' education. Through partnerships, we can inspire civic engagement in students and encourage lifelong learners.


  • Support existing partnerships between ACPS and business/community groups to enhance the efforts of ACPS to be a high-performing school division.
  • Create new partnerships between the school division, local schools, businesses, and community agencies to support the education of all children.
  • Heighten community awareness of the desire of ACPS to partner with local businesses and community agencies actively.
  • Support efforts and growth opportunities for family engagement and volunteers.
  • Investigate, develop and implement systems designed to increase strategic funding and programmatic support for ACPS.
  • Collaborate with families in providing the high-quality services that they need to be leaders in the education of their children.
  • Encourage a sense of community ownership of our schools and support the development of the academic, social, physical, creative, and emotional needs of students.
