Rockwood, Parkway School Districts Ink Partnership

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – Parkway and Rockwood school districts made history Thursday night. The two boards established a ten year community Education partnership, which starts next school year.

No other specifics were given and its not clear what this partnership means for students yet, but Rockwood Superintendent Dr. Terry Adams says its a really good thing.

“We think we will be very sustainable and allow both districts to have greater opportunities as a result of the collaboration,” he said.

When asked if something specific triggered the partnership Parkway Superintendent Dr. Keith Marty said it was just common sense.

“When we started to reach out we found that Rockwood, which is right next-door to us, has an excellent school-age program,” he told KMOX. But right now, “[Parkway] has a little advantage in the adult after school programs.”

The hope would be to offer both of those programs in each district.
