PCSD Strategic Planning

Parma City School District Initiative

C/B/S Partnership?

What is it?



Last month, the Parma City School District emailed invites to all of the churches in our local area for a Strategic Planning Focus Group on March 31.  Regrettably, there were very few in attendance at this meeting.

The Community/Business/Schools (C/B/S) Partnership was created in the early 1990’s as an effort to help establish a forum whereby businesses, churches, individuals, and groups within the community could come together to work and dialogue directly with Parma City School District personnel.


Our Mission

Community Ambassadors is a Christ-centered, compassion-driven nonprofit organization committed to promoting and facilitating greater collaboration in order to effectively empower lives, strengthen families, and build better communities.
