Parent & Community Partnerships
Pflugerville ISD welcomes partnerships between parents, businesses, organizations, and individuals who want to share their time, talent, and resources to enrich the lives of students.
Like all parts of our community, our schools are stronger when people with diverse backgrounds, skills and passions work together to passionately serve the best interests of our students. If your passion has led you to PfISD, we have a place for you. Below you will learn about all the different ways you can get involved.
For students to receive an education that makes them collaborators, thinkers and problem solvers, it is imperative they see the world beyond the classroom. Together, we are creating the workforce of tomorrow. When partners invest in our students, they act as role models and provide an additional layer of support and inspiration for students and teachers.
Partners receive value:
- Enhanced image when seen as an educational partner
- Supports workforce development
- Collaboration between employers and educators
- Giving back to the community
Partners add value:
- Expertise in their field
- Job training/ Internships
- Externships for teachers and staff
- Hands-on opportunities at their place of business
- Additional resources
- “Real-life” application of skills and improved decision-making regarding career choices
- Increased student engagement
The Pflugerville Independent School District values the participation and input of all community members. Therefore, several advisory bodies have been established that consist of broad stakeholder representation to provide insight and recommendations on important issues.
Leadership PfISD is an annual program where we invite stakeholders from the community to get an in-depth look at what it takes to run a public school district with more than 25,000 students and 3,000 employees.
Volunteering on campus is a meaningful way to give back, be involved, and see first hand the important work happening in our community.
