Developed by the Houston County Board of Education
In September, 2013, the Business, Community and Education Partnership was organized for the purpose of connecting businesses and the community with education. Many services were already being provided on an individual and collective basis to the Houston County Schools without credit being given. By forming the partnership, the contributions of all stakeholders can be recorded and proper recognition given to those individuals or entities that are such a vital part of an educational system. The Partnership, to be known as BCEP, will strive to become an expected part of the County's educational fabric connecting businesses and the community to the Houston County School System. With active involvement of the businesses and the community with education, resources can be utilized to further the educational quality of the schools. Groups such as retailers, manufacturers, utility companies, small businesses, financial institutions, and faith-based and civic organizations will initiate activities that encourage students, enrich their educational experiences, and connect them to the world of work. Would you consider being a partner? If so, I would like to set up an appointment with you to tell you more about the partnership and to ask for your help in making it a success. You may reach me by calling the School Board office at 334-792-8331. I will be notified about your interest and will call you back to set up an appointment. If you prefer to email me, my address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
