Business Partner Winners 2019 - 2020 

The School District would like to congratulate all of the school Volunteers and Business Partners winners for the school year 2019-2020.  The District extends its sincere thanks to each of the winners for their unwavering commitment and enrichment of public education in Palm Beach County. 

Your involvement as a school Volunteer or a Business Partner helps the School District provide a world-class education to students as well as enhance their academic success. At this time, due to the situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the School District’s Prevention and Readiness actions, the Volunteers and Business Partners Awards Breakfast scheduled for  Friday, April 24, 2020, at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, has been canceled.  

The School District will revisit recognition options once normal educational activities are reestablished. Please visit the 2020 Volunteers & Business Partners Awards page to view the winners for school year 2019 - 2020. 

How to get Engaged
Partnerships can be big or small and involve financial, human and in-kind resources that help meet the needs of schools, students, and teachers. Palm Beach County (PBC) schools and departments can use your help with improving education for students in PBC schools. Businesses and community organizations can work with one school/department, or they can work with multiple schools/departments or even the entire district. To get engaged or find out how you can partner with the School District, please fill out and submit an e-Business Partnership Agreement form (1570). Once you have completed the e-Business Partnership Agreement form, the district Business Partnership Coordinator will contact you regarding your partnership.

As a partner in education with The School District of Palm Beach County, you can help prepare today's students to become tomorrow's responsible, accomplished, and self-confident leaders. Your participation will also help forge the type of employees your company desires and needs. Your commitment to each student's success provides a community-minded model for our future adults.

Let's Work Together
