Maize:Connect a vision to strengthen, formalize community connections

Maize:Connect is a new vision the district is developing leading into the 2017-18 school year that will inspire our students and greater community to connect and engage. The effort formalizes relationships and community support that have been in place for years and that occurs anytime an outside organization, group, or business engages with Maize USD 266. 
The program will feature new efforts, including a centralized point of organization for student internship and shadow opportunities and a centralized point of contact for potential advertising and home game sponsorships. Opportunities to support Maize Schools will be presented globally to businesses and organizations, which then can select how to support the district.
