DESE's Partnerships with Schools and Communities

Every school and district has its own unique context, and DESE's collaborations recognize our shared responsibility to Massachusetts students, the benefit of learning from each other, and the need for different supports in different places. We're committed to building partnerships with the entire community to ensure our educators and families have what they need to fully support our kids.

Students

Whether students are looking for more opportunities to take challenging coursework, show leadership, or improve their wellbeing, our partnerships and grants help to make it happen.

Families

In addition to administering programs such as school meals, we help families identify traditional and adult learning options in their community, measure their child's progress, and address concerns.

Educators

Teachers give their all to get students excited about learning, and we help with educator training, leadership opportunities, and recognition programs.
