Community Partner Dashboard

  • Introduction
     
    OUSD is connecting with all community partners at the district level through our new system, The OUSD Community Partner Database. We kindly ask all of our community partners to register in our database and update annually.  We hope to increase communication and cohesion with our community partners, and uplift the outcomes of community schools. Through partnership with community based organizations and individuals, we can leverage our collective resources to provide more services to students and families.

Prospective Partners

By submitting this form, you are requesting that your program information be shared with an appropriate school district department for review. Pre-approved site-based providers will be publicly visible as prospective community partners in the OUSD Community Partner Dashboard.
