Partners in Education
The Partners in Education program in Waxahachie ISD was developed from a partnership with the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce, with 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 school year, more than 5,400 individuals give 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 is managed by the Community Outreach Department located within the administration office at 411 N. Gibson Street. For more information or clarification of content on this page, please feel free to reach out.
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.
Partners in Education, a collaborative effort between Waxahachie ISD and the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce, reaches students of all ages within WISD through volunteerism. Waxahachie ISD is grateful to the many volunteers, businesses, churches, and service organizations who gave so generously and so graciously to the students and staff of Waxahachie Schools during the school year, especially during this most unique time. Volunteers share their time, talents behind the scenes, and expertise. They gave donations, incentives, and funds. In addition to the companies and organizations listed below, campuses are asked to honor one special business, church, or service organization for its outstanding work during the school year.
