Triton has had long-standing relationships with area schools with the first School/College Partnership (SCP) model beginning with our public high schools in 1983 and the formation of the Private High School Partnership in 1996. In order to build relationships with our community, students, and schools earlier in the educational continuum, the K-8 Partnership was developed in 2008. In January 2013, Triton College along with several of the K-12 district leaders began conversations in order to explore a new model that would assist in better aligning the structure and help the transition of students through the educational continuum through enhanced collaboration.
SCHOOL/COLLEGE ALLIANCE - PURPOSE STATEMENT
The School/College Alliance is a collaborative network of educational leaders from across District 504 with a focus on assisting all students throughout the education continuum. Working from the perspective of an aligned curriculum continuous throughout grades K-14, the Alliance strives to ensure that resources and services are being maximized to support student retention, transition, completion and success. Due to the shared responsibility among educators, elementary through college, in seamlessly advancing college readiness students, all levels of education will work together to collectively address education issues through shared data, resources, and projects, thereby, supporting a variety of educational and career pathways for our students.
The Advisory Council for the School\College Alliance will be the governing board of the partnership, composed of district leadership from Triton, superintendents from the district K-8 and Public High Schools, executive leadership from Private High Schools, and executives from Des Plaines Valley Region and West 40. The role of the council is to provide leadership that will assist in the implementation of strategies and initiatives that will propel the mission of the School/College Alliance for student success.
