3 Historically, schools and school districts have created a range of partnerships with community groups, organizations, faith- based groups and agencies that would support the work of the schools Sometimes these partnerships may have had relevant connections to improving student achievement, but oftentimes this was not the initial thinking as these partnerships were being formulated. In many instances, these partnerships did not result in any measurable gains in student achievement. Currently, SLPS does not have district level oversight that serves as the intake office for identifying, monitoring and evaluating new and existing partnerships. Using existing resources, plans are underway for structuring this office. 2/14/20143St. Louis Public Schools

4 During the school year, the Regional Business Council and the Greater Saint Louis Community Foundation commissioned the University of Missouri-St. Louis Public Policy Center to create a report on the intersection between community-based organizations and the St. Louis Public Schools." At the time of the report, the District indicated that there were 741 community–based organizations working in the schools. Of those, 80 provided data on expenditures with the district, totaling about $20.5 million. Forty-three (43) organizations reported contributing employee time at an estimated value of $5.2 million. Several of these partnerships still exist today and reap great benefits to the District and individual schools. 2/14/20144St. Louis Public Schools

5 For the school year, five new models of Partnership Schools, with a systemic focus, will be implemented in the District. They are: The Zoo Museum District (ZMD) School focused on science and math delivered through a project-based learning (PBL) model. Partnerships will be established with area museums, the Missouri Botanical Garden and Saint Louis Zoo. The Home Visit School (HVS) focused on creating stronger home-school connections, with teachers making home visits after school during the summer, spring, and fall. Teachers will receive a stipend for making home visits. 2/14/20145St. Louis Public Schools

There will be a collaborative working relationship with the Center of School Improvement Leadership. ° The Police Athletic League (PAL) School, which will partner with the National PAL office and provide Chapter members opportunities to bring young athletes together to compete in a championship environment in several sports. 2/14/20146St. Louis Public Schools
