School-Business Partnership

School-Business Partnership

Why is there a need for a School-Business Partnership?

  • Develop a positive relationship between our district and community businesses.
  • Provide opportunities for students to gain knowledge about career paths.
  • Provide our community with graduates who are knowledgeable in fields within Washington and surrounding areas.
  • Provide students with positive role models within our community.

In what way can a business contribute to the partnership?

  • Guest Speaker - Speak to a class on a topic related to an occupation/business to facilitate a connection between curriculum and the working world.
  • Mentoring - Meeting with students for designated, on-going periods of time to tutor, provide encouragement and be a positive role model.
  • Tours - Allow students to visit the actual workplace.

What is the process for engaging in a partnership?

  • A teacher or School-Business Partnership Liaison will contact a business to participate in the program.
  • A discussion will occur between the teacher and the business to determine the goals and expectations of the partnership.
  • The Partnership Activity Form may be completed by the teacher in collaboration with the business to aid in planning the event. See page five of the School-Business Partnership Handbook more information.


For more information, please contact Washington High School Assistant Principal Joseph Dierks at (636) 231-2200 for secondary information or Washington West Elementary Principal Kim Hunt at (636) 390-9150 for elementary information.
