Employees participate in volunteer activities designed to advance student skills in literacy at the elementary school level, STEAM in middle schools, and college and career readiness in high schools. Our goal is to “circle” all 110 public schools and use this initiative to support the School District’s Vision 2025.

Our Current Circle the Schools Partners

Circle the Schools is shifting the paradigm- bringing the leaders of our city into our classrooms to truly cultivate the next generation of innovators. We want students not only to better understand the opportunities available to them in our great city, but to get to know who these leaders are so they can see themselves in those roles – and that’s the promise of Circle the Schools. I want to thank the partner companies from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of 57,000 students, thank you for making a difference!
