Partners in Education
The Partners in Education program in Waxahachie ISD developed from a partnership with the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce, through a common goal: to encourage community volunteer involvement. Through the Partners in Education program, Waxahachie ISD has great support in volunteer efforts from the Waxahachie community. Under the umbrella of Partners in Education, there are a number of programs to get involved in, such as Adopt-A-Class, D.E.A.R. Day, Grandfriends Week, Go Van Gogh, and more! In addition, there are PTO and volunteer opportunities available on every campus.
During the 2019-2020 school year, more than 5,400 individuals gave over 70,000 hours of their time. Each year over 300 businesses contribute to WISD through donations, incentives, and volunteer time proving yet again the overwhelming support the community shows for their local school district.
The Partners in Education Program has community support through its Partners in Education Advisory Board. This board is made up of community leaders from all areas of the workforce. The purpose of the Partners in Education Advisory Board is to encourage business and community involvement in schools to prepare our students for the future by promoting partnerships between WISD, businesses, and organizations. These partnerships show an understanding that the economic well-being and vitality of our community are tied directly to the school system.
The Partners in Education program is managed by the Community Outreach Department located within the administration office at 411 N. Gibson Street. For more information or clarification of content within this page, please feel free to reach out.
