Community & School District Partners Add Value

Working with school district and community partners adds value across the Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties. How? It takes teamwork to build strong programs.  First, we partner with Learning Community families. In fact, their firsthand experiences give us a great sense of what’s working.  Feedback from our growing partnership network also adds tremendous value. Together, our partners reflect the greatest strengths of the Omaha metro area. As a result, the Learning Community benefits from expertise in public education, higher education, research, health & well-being, philanthropy, and nonprofit organizations. We’re proud to call them all partners
