While fiscal resources continue to dwindle, the mandates of NCLB have placed restraints on those who can be hired and schools are expected to continue to do more to meet the intellectual, social and emotional needs of students, what can be done to realistically help meet the increasing demands? Developing and maintaining partnerships with a variety of stakeholders, may be a way to accomplish this. There is more to this than the adopt a school model or the school needs money and/or materials, so what can a partner do to provide them? According to Sammon and Becton (2001) 90% of partnerships fail in a year because of these approaches. Currently, successful programs are taking the time to grow and nurture their partnerships. In fact, according to the latest research, funding should not be part of the equation when soliciting partnerships. These relationships should be about providing opportunities for student growth. This paper offers tips on how to establish and develop partnerships as well as some ways to ulitize partners. (Contains 21 online resources.)
