Frequently Asked Questions

How can a business partner with schools?

There are several ways a business can partner with the Tempe Elementary School District. Currently the Tempe School District partners with many public and private sector partners. These partnerships provide resources and curriculum-based opportunities to Tempe School district students and staff. These programs allow business and community members to connect schools with resources thus providing literacy, math, social studies, finance, fine arts, science, health, and physical education experiences to students who may otherwise not have the opportunity. The result is a richer educational experience while preparing our students to be well-rounded citizens. Businesses can support schools through backpack drives, clothing drives, adopting families during the holiday seasons, providing staff to work field days and carnivals just to name a few.
