Linking schools and businesses: An ASBJ webinar

School and business partnerships can be tricky. Hear how one school district has navigated the challenges of these partnerships in an upcoming webinar presented by the editors of American School Board Journal. It will be held Thursday, Oct. 18, from 1 to 2 p.m. EDT. Register here.

Virginia’s Newport News Public Schools has developed a Career Pathways initiative to create “college, career, and citizen-ready” students. These school-business partnerships have garnered widespread community support and convinced a growing number of business and community groups to invest human and financial resources to help create a better-educated and better-trained workforce.

The free webinar will feature Newport News Public Schools Superintendent Ashby Kilgore, along with other key players of the initiative, explaining how school leaders can use partnerships to transform the educational experiences for students while providing a payoff for the business community. And be sure to read the recent ASBJ article on creating school-business partnerships.
