BP 1700 Relations Between Private Industry and the Schools

KPBSD Policy Manual

BP 1700

Community Relations

The School Board encourages representatives of private industry to participate with the schools in preparing our students for challenges they will meet in the future. Working together as partners, the business community and the schools should seek to educate students who will contribute to the productive work force on which our economy depends.

(cf. 1150 - Board Commendation Program)

Local employers are encouraged to serve on advisory committees, help design regular, vocational and technical programs, and provide needs assessments, program evaluations, and/or staff development for school managers and teachers. Businesses may also provide classroom assistance, individual tutoring, incentive and recognition programs, work experience opportunities, apprenticeship programs and employment opportunities. The Board recognizes that the success of business involvement depends largely upon the commitment of adequate staff resources to plan and implement such activities.

Advertising sponsorship relationships are encouraged in support of school programs. All sponsorship agreements shall be reviewed by the Superintendent before finalized.
