About Us » Partnerships


Strategic partnerships are important to the district. They expand our ability to provide a world-class education to our Pirate learners and advance us toward our mission. As evidenced by our mission and our strategic foundation, we believe our partners share in the responsibility in ensuring our students' success. We continue to seek additional partnerships through initiatives such as the Early Learning Collaborative (ELC), which allows businesses and individuals to invest in our littlest Pirates, PreK4, through a 1-to-1 Tax Credit. Taxpayers can keep their tax dollars local while giving our community access to free full-day PreK. To learn more about the ELC, please call 228-255-6200. Donations are due by December 31 of each year to be included in that year's state tax deductions.
