To unleash the power of school and business partnerships, educational leaders need a comprehensive understanding of the need for partnerships, the nature of school and business partnerships, the barriers sometimes encountered, and the key elements of successful partnerships. This professional development session facilitated by Dr. Guy Alba, Central High School Administrator, addresses these issues and guides participants in subjecting their own school and business partnerships to the rigorous assessment of the Partners Affecting Learning (PAL) Evaluation Model® and the use of the PAL Evaluation Tool®.
