Proposals

At the heart of the Partnership’s philosophy is the belief that the talent and drive needed to move our schools forward lie within our communities. As a result, we want to involve as much of our community as possible in the school change process. With this goal in mind, we seek proposals from teachers, parents, students, and community partners to move our work forward. Click below to download the proposal funds application or learn more.

*Please note that as of December 1, 2015, our proposal funds for community partners have been exhausted.  We are still accepting proposals from BHS and WMHS teachers and students.
