Welcome to the Cedar Rapids Community School District Partnership Website.

Cedar Rapids Community School District seeks opportunities to partner with community organizations for the purpose of
supporting student social, emotional and academic growth and achieving our mission of  "Every Learner: Future Ready".

CRCSD is currently accepting proposals for community partner agencies and organizations interested in providing mental
health/substance use services and equity programs to students in a school setting for the 2020/21 school year. The selected
organizations will work collaboratively with CRCSD staff and leadership to plan, implement and evaluate effective programs
that contribute to enhanced academic achievement for at-risk populations.

CRCSD has a limited amount of funding to help offset the cost of priority services for at-risk students. Applications for
partnership submitted during the RFP process may also request funding to supplement proposed programs and services.
Please note that due to uncertainties related to COVID 19, funding availability and selection process timeline are subject to
