The Department of Strategic Partnerships & Innovation actively collaborates with Madison's community to meet common goals and accomplish together what one organization cannot do alone. We leverage local, regional and national resources and support teams to develop and implement high-quality, research-based, innovative strategies that prepare all students for college, career and community.

We achieve this through:

  • School-Community Partnerships – Community organizations provide a wealth of assets to our schools through partnerships aligned with the district’s Strategic Framework.
  • Volunteer Programs – Community members support our students by filling a diverse array of roles across the district including but not limited to academic tutoring.
  • Grants and Fund Development – Private and public funds and donations provide needed resources to our schools.
  • School Innovation – Promising models for school innovation are explored and supported including but not limited to charter schools.

 

Partnerships between MMSD and the community are essential to students’ success. When MMSD and community partners align and coordinate efforts we create a seamless web of supports, improve outcomes for students and generate new opportunities that strengthen family, school and community. Through partnerships, we work together to ensure that schools thrive and students are prepared for college, career and community.
