As a business in Katy, it doesn't take long to notice that our Katy ISD community is rapidly growing and ever-changing. Yet the fabric of our district remains the many caring people and organizations who are determined to give back to those who support them. Connecting with our Katy community has long been the key to successful growth of many local businesses. In addition, many Houston-area businesses will likely find that a large percentage of their employees live in Katy ISD and send their children to our schools. As a result, our partner businesses have discovered that giving time and resources to Katy ISD schools just makes sense: affording a unique, well-managed opportunity to positively impact their employees, future workforce in our students and teachers.
If you are a business interested in becoming involved in Katy ISD schools, Partners in Education facilitates that connection by providing the opportunity to build a meaningful relationship with your chosen schools' teachers, administrators and parent community. Our ultimate goal is to help area businesses establish a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship created and managed by a business and its partner campus or campuses.
Take a look at our Core Values and what makes business partnerships unique in Katy ISD:
Katy ISD School-Business Partnerships Core Values
Katy ISD School-Business Partnerships are long-term, mutually beneficial relationships created and managed by a business and its partner campus.
We choose what's best for kids
When making decisions our conversation always begins with what's most beneficial for students. Students and the teachers who lead them are at the center of every Katy ISD School-Business Partnership.
We put people first
Our partnerships are relationship driven. School-Business Partners make every effort to personally engage with their partner campuses, and to volunteer when possible. Campuses make every effort to include business partners in campus activities, and they welcome interaction with partner employees.
We respect one another's organizational purpose and guidelines
Schools and businesses understand one another's core values and purpose. They seek common ground between the two while operating within one another's guidelines.
We create new partnership opportunities
Our partnerships are dynamic, innovative and always remain open to new ideas.
Both business and school actively participate in the partnership
Campus and business partnership liaisons lead the way in developing the partnership relationship, staying in touch with one another, and creating opportunities to expand the partnership. Campus liaisons are faithful in leading their staff and students in appropriate reciprocation and expressing gratitude for partner support.
