iCommunity Board Purpose: To foster productive partnerships between the local community and Barrington Public Schools while satisfying community needs through collaboration, interaction, 21st century thinking, and creativity.
What Is It:
The Community Board is a platform that connects local businesses or organizations with the students at Barrington High School in a mutually beneficial relationship. A business or organization that has a need may submit a request using the Community Board Request Form.
Partnerships are created for students to be provided invaluable opportunities and apply the skills they are learning in the classroom to real world situations. This connection is also established to provide businesses and community organizations with the skills and resources they require to fulfill a potential need. The result is a productive partnership that brings together the school and the community!
The Right Fit:
The Community Board Coordinator will review the request made by the business and determine the most effective means for addressing the need. These means may include matching the request with a class which will solve the problem through a class project or by creating an internship opportunity for a student or group of students.
How It Works:
A business or organization identifies a need
The business or organization submits a request using the Community Board Request Form
The Barrington High School Community Board Coordinator reviews the request and identifies the most effective means for fulfilling the need
The business or organization representative and Barrington High School students work together to fulfill the request
