To work with your district leadership on DonorsChoose.org:
- School District Toolkit: This guide for school district leaders includes case studies of districts using DonorsChoose.org to support districtwide goals, template communications to create buzz with principals and teachers, and a teacher training deck.
- District Partners: DonorsChoose has a variety of free tools and controls set up for districts that you can sign up for by joining the free District Partnership Program. We encourage you to connect your district leadership to DonorsChoose, so we can set the district up with regular reporting, collect the district’s technology guidelines for teachers, keep your principals in the loop on resources shipped to their schools, and give you advance notice of our funding opportunities for your teachers and schools.
