North Division joins Community Schools Partnership

North Division joins Community Schools PartnershipStrong partners improve equity and enhance student success. To boost student achievement, MPS North Division High School has announced that it will partner with the Milwaukee Urban League and United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County as part of the Milwaukee Community Schools Partnership. This United Way initiative works with community partners to improve education outcomes, school climate, and local neighborhoods while ensuring that equity and cultural relevance are cultivated in all programs and engagement.

The Community School model has been implemented across the nation and in about a dozen MPS schools. As available school resources continue to tighten, partners provide volunteers, supply drives, leadership, mentorship, tutoring, and more to make sure every child receives the education they deserve. Partnerships represent an investment in the future of our youth who will one day be our economic and community leaders.

North Division joins Community Schools Partnership“Partnering with North Division allows us to enhance employment and training opportunities in high demand industries, and career and college readiness programs for young people,” said Dr. Eve M. Hall, President and CEO of the Milwaukee Urban League. “Because the league is a connector, we will be able to engage students, teachers, and parents in additional community, economic development, and business activities.”

The Milwaukee Urban League, United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County, and North Division High School are eager to unlock the potential of young people and the surrounding community. MPS is grateful for the engagement of these strong partners who are prepared to accelerate student learning.
