• Our community is key to successful student learning and development. The Partners in Education program is a community engagement initiative that connects businesses and organizations with our schools to make a lasting impact for Hillsborough County students. The focus is to create ongoing connections and relationships with partners who can share their experience, time, donations, financial contributions, and/or other resources with our students and district.

  • Partners LogoBy becoming a Partner in Education, you are not only supporting the work of Hillsborough County Public Schools, but you are declaring that every child deserves a highly effective teacher in their classroom, affirming a community where our teachers and staff are supported, and ultimately graduating more students ready for college or a future career. Your involvement and public support is vital in helping the community and our schools grow together.

    To become a Partner in Education:

    • You must be a business or organization with an interest in Hillsborough County Public Schools. You do not need to be in the Tampa Bay Area, though many will be.
    • Participate/facilitate at least three or more activities with Hillsborough County Public Schools annually. Organizations can partner with an individual school, multiple schools or with our entire district.
    • We seek to engage in partnerships that are mutually beneficial. This partnership will provide benefits to our schools as well as your business/organization.

    As a Partner, your organization will:

    • Gain public recognition for being a supporter of Hillsborough County Public Schools and receive our Partners in Education logo that can be prominently displayed on your website.
    • Receive recognition in our bi-annual eNewsletter.
    • Get invitations to Partner in Education member-only events throughout the year.
