School Partnerships

Looking to become a partner with one or more CCSD school?
A business or organization may apply to become a school partner through The Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce's Partners in Education (PIE) program or through CCSD's Company That Care (CTC) program. 

Want to know how your business or organization can help a CCSD school through a partnership?
To view each school’s wish list of partnership requests, please click here.

What's the difference between CTC and PIE?

The Partners in Education program is offered through the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce to Chamber members only. As a PIE, the Chamber will: assist partners and schools with the application process; give a partnership certificate to the business/organization and partnering school to display as desired; give members the opportunity to be featured in the Chamber's quarterly "PARTNERS" e-newsletter; and allow eligibility to be recognized and awarded as an outstanding business partner at the Chamber's Good Morning Cherokee Breakfast each May.

For more information about the Chamber's PIE program, please click here.                                                                                                                       

CCSD's Companies That Care program is offered by the Cherokee County School District to non-chamber members who are interested in institutionalizing a formal partnership agreement with one or more school. As a CTC, a partner may contact schools directly to apply. The School Partner Ambassador at each school will be able to supply you with the application, or you may click here to begin filling out your portion of the application. Once completed, contact the individual School Partner Ambassador. He/she will be able to assist you with any questions you may have. CTC partners and schools will receive a certificate to display as desired.


Both, PIE and CTC partners will be: listed below, under each partnering school with logo and link to page; listed on individual partnering school websites; given equal partnering opportunities and listed on (non-specific) partnering promotional signage/information shared at the school-level; eligible to be awarded and recognized as a school's Partner of the Year at the CCSD Partner and Volunteer of the Year Award Ceremony, held each spring and given the opportunity of being selected as the overall CCSD Partner of the Year award winner. 

Please note that applying through either program does not guarantee that you will become a partner. This is ultimately a school-level decision.

If you have any additional questions or suggestions, please contact: penny.dempsey@cherokeek12.net.
