In-School External Agency/Service Provider

Service providers who wish to offer programs and services (by regulated health professionals, regulated social service professionals, and paraprofessionals) within our schools, to our students, are invited and required to submit an application for external agency collaboration.  A central board committee, the Collaborative Partnership Committee in accordance with PPM 149 will review each application. Consideration will be given to those programs and services that are supplemental to those being provided by school board staff, and are consistent with the Board’s mission, vision, and values.

The committee will meet on a regular basis to review applications and will communicate decisions to each applicant. 

Upon approval, a Collaboration Agreement will be jointly entered into by the External Agency or Third Party Service provider and the Board.

Any community partner that falls outside of PPM 149 should not apply using this method.  We are in the process of creating an alternate application process and anticipate the details will be posted by mid November of 2023.
