Detroit Public Schools Foundation


This grant will support the launch of the Detroit Public Schools Community District Workforce Partnership Office (WPO). This office will be charged with assessing current workforce partnership efforts and designing a go-forward strategy for the District. The WPO will partner 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.
