Round Rock ISD welcomes partnerships between businesses, organizations and individuals who want to share their time, talent and resources to enrich the lives of students. Round Rock ISD is committed to forming “rock solid” partnerships that are focused on long term relationships between the business community and our campuses.

Why partnerships?

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 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

Partners receive value:

  • Enhanced image when seen as educational partner
  • Supports workforce development
  • Collaboration between employers and educators
  • Giving back to community

High School Academy Partners
In order to better prepare students for college and the workforce, all five RRISD high schools offer a multitude of Academy selections, much like the traditional higher education setting.

Through the Academy of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM), the Academy of Professional Studies, the Academy of International Business & Economics as well as a selection of unique academies, students will receive a well rounded education that also gives them a jumpstart into their career pursuit, some even presenting professional certification opportunities.

Each Academy depends on Business Partners to enrich and enhance the classroom experience through guest speaking, student internships, real-world projects, business tours and Teacher Externships. Each Academy also has an Advisory Committee to keep curriculum and instruction on track.
