Detroit Public Schools Community District is generously supported by a diverse range of strategic partners. Our partners are comprised of companies, organizations, and individuals who are committed to the success of our students and District. We invite you to partner with us by providing support for special programs, in-kind services, and targeted resources that contribute to the enhancement of the educational environment and academic achievement of our students.

Creating a New Partnership
All District partners must sign an official agreement with the District, and creating an agreement has never been easier! Check out our Easy Start Checklist, which walks you through the entire process. When you are ready, the online application is linked within this document.
Looking for the answer to a specific question? Check out these helpful links:
- What kind of agreement does my organization need?
- What sort of background check(s) will be required? Are the requirements the same for student teachers and other pre-service learners?
- Can I request to use a school building? If so, whom should I contact?
- How should I handle consent forms for my programming?
Life Remodeled, which operates the Durfee Innovation Society, has launched an exciting new program for nonprofit organizations looking to set and achieve big goals. You can email Diallo Smith for more information and click here to learn about attending the Next Level Nonprofit Conference on February 10, 2023.
Amending & Renewing Current Agreements
The Partnerships Office was excited to launch a brand-new evaluation and renewal process in the spring of 2021. You can learn more about it from this document.
If you have an amendment to request, please complete this form so that we can process it expeditiously. (Please note that you need not complete this survey if you requested an amendment through the evaluation and renewal process earlier this spring.)
