In 1999, the Arlington County and School Boards created the Partnership – a community-led organization comprised of appointed community members and designated County and School members charged with developing a consistent community agenda for Arlington’s children and families. The Partnership’s mission is three-fold: 1) researching the needs of our community; 2) advocating for improved policies and programs to meet those needs; and 3) engaging our community as part of the solution. The Partnership is excited to be working with numerous community members, local organizations, and County agencies and APS to present this unique Community experience.
