• School Partnerships

    A partnership is an ongoing, dynamic relationship that must be mutually beneficial for the school, the students, and the partner. Partnerships are designed to encourage a cooperative relationship between a school and a business or other organization in support of the District's mission. Partnerships can include volunteer relationships and grant-related services. If you are interested in becoming a partner with Columbus City Schools, you may contact Krista Bower, Business Partnerships Coordinator, at 614-365-8869 or by email at:

    At the beginnig of the 2020-21 School Year, we launched our newly designed CCS Partnership Registry. Our goal is to have all current and potential partners register their organization and programs/work with CCS. The Partnership Registry will give insight and information on the types of services our partners are providing, how many students they are serving, and which areas of the district they are working in. More importantly, it will help us identify the gaps and overlaps in these services so that we can be more equitable in our partnership efforts across all parts of our District and for all students who need and deserve support.

    The link to our new Partnership Registry can be found at The website has easy-to-follow directions on how to complete the registry.
