Become an OST Partner
An Out-of-School Time (OST) partner is an organization that offers recurring programming and services that take place in or out of the school building, and before, during, or after school. These programs are designed with learning objectives and positive student outcomes in mind, whether that be academic, socioemotional, or physical (before care, after school, mentoring, etc..). They are also opt-in and not referral based. An OST partner would not include mental health and social services offered through Student Support Services and Student Assistance Program providers or someone working with a school for a limited time or a onetime event.
Organizations that do not currently have a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with our office are encouraged to complete our New Partnership Application. The responses to this application are built into a Logic Model and reviewed for alignment to District goals and OST alignment. New partners are considered on a quarterly basis and can be extended into the next school year. We will accept new partner applications four times this year. Please see deadlines below.
Summer: submit by June 24, 2019 (deadline passed)
Fall: submit by October 7, 2019
Winter: submit by January 13, 2020
Spring: submit by March 9, 2020
On a yearly basis, all current partners are asked to renew and extend their partnership by completing our Returning Partnership Application. This application should only be completed by organizations that have an MOU on file with the Out-of-School Time office.
If you have any questions about the OST partnership application process please contact Tylor Hart.
