“Every community has large social problems. No one entity can solve it in the community. It’s not accidental that this momentum is taking pace.” On backbone organizations, sharing data and being transparent, and innovative partnerships

“When we give our partners some room in finance and staffing for example, it’s been interesting and enlightening to see what they can do. That’s a benefit of these partnership. They can pilot quickly, within district schools, and can share learning across the district.”

Lessons learned from an excellent panel with @Midland_ISD on partnerships: 1. Prepare your internal team to be ready to think differently and respond to the nimbleness of partners. 2. Clear up misconceptions. These are Midland ISD students, and district schools.
