The “Partnership” in Ford PAS
Ford PAS partners not only with local communities and schools, but also with national and regional organizations that demonstrate expertise across a range of disciplines within education reform and community engagement.
- Ford PAS takes the lead role in areas where we have developed a unique core of expertise.
- In cases where like-minded organizations and consultants have already developed a core area of competence that can benefit a school, district, or community, we can play a facilitating or brokering role in bringing the expertise of those organizations to bear.
- We also help prepare communities to mentor other like-minded communities that share similar goals in mobilizing broad support for effective education reform.
In all of our partnerships, we focus on the development of local capacity to tailor programs and solutions to a particular community’s strengths and challenges.
