ADOPT A SCHOOL

Posted by Detroit Public Schools on Detroit Public Schools Site on 05/31/2013

There's never been a better time for businesses, alumni, community members and everyone concerned with public education to partner with Detroit Public Schools. Emergency Financial Manager Robert Bobb recently announced the creation of the Detroit Public Schools Volunteer Business Corps/B.O.L.D. program (Businesses/Organizations Optimizing Learning in Detroit), which aims to create new school partnerships throughout the district and ensure those partnerships are working to the maximum benefit of both schools and organizations. He was joined by representatives from PNC Bank, The Doubletree Fort Shelby Hotel, Michigan State University, Office Depot, Fox 2 News, the Detroit Regional Chamber and City Year Detroit,

“The range of business partners who already have committed to helping Detroit’s schoolchildren succeed and learn, including major banks, hotels and universities, and recently General Motors' extraordinary commitment of support, shows that this community believes in DPS and knows that we all have to work together to create a world-class school district,” Bobb said. “With the greatly enhanced rigor we've instituted in the classrooms, it's the right time for all businesses – large and small, in Detroit and the suburbs – to join with us so that every school has the resources it needs to become a Center of Excellence.”
