    DISTRICT MINIMUM PARTNER REQUIREMENTS


    In an effort to increase communication and alignment with our partners, and uplift the outcomes of community schools, OUSD is connecting with all partners at the district level through our Annual Partnership Process. Prior to entering schools, the OUSD Board of Education requires the following items, in accordance with the California Education Code. Once the requirements are completed, eligible partners are added to our Approved Partners List.

    Partnership Process FAQs:

     

     

     

    1. Who is subject to the Annual Partnership Process?

     

    • All Current Site-Based Partners of OUSD are subject to the Partnership Process.

    • A Site-Based Partner is an outside organization or individual entering OUSD schools or interacting with OUSD students to provide services during the current school year and/or summer.

    • External Partners that do not enter OUSD schools or interact with OUSD students are not subject to the Partnership Process.

    • Partners that enter OUSD schools one-time only during the current school year and/or summer are not subject to the Partnership Process.

    • Afterschool Subcontractors entering OUSD schools are subject to the Partnership Process.

    • Individual Volunteers that are not working on behalf of an outside partner organization are not subject to the Partnership Process.  They should register as volunteers with the Ed Fund.

    Annual Partnership Process Requirements:

     

     

     

    Once the school and partner agree to commence programs and services, the partner needs to be approved at the district level.  

     

    School adminstrators (Principals, APs, Community School Managers etc.) should email Martin.Young@ousd.org (Cc: partner contact) to confirm the partnership agreement.

     

    The email introduction should include the partner org name and contact information, and the partner will be placed on Pending Approval list.  Schools should monitor the Pending Approval list for the status of the partner's deliverables.  

     

    To become an Approved Partner, you must perform two actions:

     

    A. Verify or Create your board approved contract* with OUSD to complete TB, fingerprinting, and insurance requirements.

     

    B. Update or Register in Partnership Database.

     

    *Board approved contracts are MOUs or Professional Services Contracts (PSCs), which are submitted to the Board of Education.

     

     

     

    Instructions on how to begin the process follow below.
