Provide Background Details and Rationale: The Park Hill School District recognizes the value and importance of its partnership with parents and community members for future success. In 2015, the district implemented a new program called “Park Hill Partners” to strengthen our relationship with key parent/community members. Building level principals recommend parents who have demonstrated a strong commitment to the district through service and volunteer activities. Participants will be provided an in-depth look into the current and future direction of the district. To become an official “Park Hill Partner”, participants attend four (4) informational sessions facilitated by Dr. Cowherd, Superintendent along with her Executive Cabinet.

The 2019 Park Hill Partners Cohort will meet from 5:00-7:30 p.m. on October 7th and 22nd and November 4th and 19th. Sessions will be held at the District Office, 7703 NW Barry Road in Room 230. Participants will receive certificates and be recognized by the Board of Education as official “Park Hill Partners” at the December 12th Board meeting.
