DPS Looking to Partner with Churches, Businesses, and Organizations to Adopt A School






Decatur, Illinois — Decatur Public Schools is looking for community groups, churches, businesses, and organizations willing to build relationships with our schools to support student success. Partners and schools will work together to determine how to best connect partner resources and interests with the school’s unique needs. Schools and organizations both benefit from these partnerships — our schools and students benefit from the additional resources, support, and experiences provided by their partners. And partners have an opportunity to make a direct impact by forming meaningful connections in our school community.

Here are just a few ideas of ways partners can support our schools:

·         Volunteer at school projects or events like career days, field trips, and back-to-school events

·         Read to students or volunteer in a classroom once a week

·         Mentor students who may need a consistent adult presence in their life

·         Donate supplies to a school or classroom

Anyone interested in partnering with one or more of our schools is invited to the Adopt A School kickoff event.
