Office of External Affairs 

Great things can be achieved when the community at-large supports public education. The Office of External Affairs supports the academic achievements of our students by strengthening partnerships and community involvement, engaging in legislative advocacy and providing high-quality constituent services and special events.

Our partners enable us to connect the needs of schools with the intellectual and financial resources of the community. Mentoring and tutoring, volunteering, internships, financial contributions and in-kind donations are just a few ways that partners can significantly impact student achievement. Please visit to upload your school’s needs to be matched with potential partners.

In addition to developing partnerships, the Office of External Affairs facilitates active engagement between communities and schools and assists schools in being good neighbors. We also connect APS and external stakeholders by coordinating opportunities for two-way communications at district and community meetings, activities and special events.
