We collaborate effectively with various organizations throughout the county. Those collaborations are among law enforcement, public and private community agencies, faith-based organizations, and institutions of higher education. The purpose of these collaborations is to identify the service needs of the community and to ensure that children receive the assistance they need to be successful in school, a benefit for students at all grade levels.  The cooperative efforts among parents, community organizations, and schools can provide the support students need to cope with the many problems they face today.
