A partnership is, "A mutually beneficial relationship between Saint Paul Public Schools and an external entity with the primary goal of improving learner success."

Partnerships should:

  • Align with SPPS goals, including Strong Schools, Strong Communities
  • Assist with providing a more holistic education to our students
  • Support principals, teachers and families with student development  

Partnerships are vital to learner success:


  • They provide additional extracurricular activities for our students
  • They help the community participate in the education of our students
  • They provide students to culturally rich learning opportunities schools are unable to provide because of a lack of resources
