Detroit Public Schools Foundation


This grant will continue support of the Detroit Public Schools Community District Workforce Partnership Office. The focus of the Workforce Partnership Office is to increase college and career readiness for Detroit Public Schools Community District students through expanded, strengthened, and connected career pathway education opportunities. It will begin Phase III of its plan to strengthen capacity building, partnership engagement, and dual enrollment expansion in order to accelerate current programs. The Workforce Partnership Office will continue to work closely with the Office of Career & College Readiness to inform its strategy with local, regional, and national trends–including data and measurement from these efforts–and integrate these findings in partnerships, curriculum, and school management.
