2015 Partnership Organization Award Winners

Partnership Organization Award Winners

One organization earned a 2015 Partnership Organization Award from NNPS at Johns Hopkins University. Organizations in NNPS work in varied ways.  Some work “like a state”— assisting many districts and schools. Others work “like a district”— directly facilitating a number of schools with their partnership programs.  Organizations in NNPS must show that they are guiding district leaders and/or school teams to develop their leadership and programs of partnerships. Organizations also must encourage their sites to join NNPS as active participants in the national agenda.

The Partnership Organization Award winner submitted descriptions of leadership activities and actions in 2015. The activities are part of the organization’s Leadership Action Plan for Partnerships (also submitted).  Guidelines for organizations are provided in the NNPS book, School, Family, and Community Partnerships: Your Handbook for Action, Third Edition (2009, Corwin Press). Organizations in NNPS develop eight “essential elements” for leadership on partnerships: leadership, teamwork, written plans, implementation, funding, support from colleagues, evaluation, and networking.  Repeat organization winners that earned awards in the past must show how they improved their programs over time and scaled up the numbers and/or quality of school-based partnership programs.
