The Partners for Excellence Program of the Ann Arbor Public Schools was initiated in February 1985 with the inauguration of six partnerships that paired schools with area businesses and organizations. This program was developed to increase community involvement in the schools, enhance classroom learning, and provide assistance with school improvement projects.
Over the decades, the Ann Arbor Public Schools have established a long and exemplary tradition of educational excellence. This tradition has been supported and enhanced by the strong commitment and involvement of the community. Today, more than ever, the services of the community are needed to strengthen our educational programs.
