Collaboration and Partnerships

Education is important business and the responsibility of every citizen. It is critical to establish and strengthen alliances with individuals and organizations to share responsibility to achieve common goals. The educational community should include as many active members as possible to meet the needs of our California children.

The school culture should be created to include one another in education. Collaboration and partnerships should be meaningful and seriously established. They should be carefully planned to be 50-50 or two way relationships. Alliances should be  widely sought and clearly communicated so that populations not usually addressed are included, thus widening positive partnerships.

Collaboration and partnerships can be, but not limited to foundations, businesses, city management such as mayor, council, etc., community services such as police, fire department, etc., parents, older students, organizations such as, universities and colleges with pre-schools, elementary, middle, and high schools, schools in other districts, and state and federal government.

Educators must be aware of the following:

Schools and districts need to include collaboration and partnerships in their plan that will help achieve goals and mission

The California Reading Association has partnerships and collaboration as a main goal to ultimately strengthen our impact on California children. CRA carefully seeks and establishes relationships that support our mission and help us to achieve our goals. We support the inclusion of collaboration and partnerships in the classrooms and schools throughout the state as a means for promoting a quality teaching and learning community.
