About the Office of External Affairs
The Office of External Affairs (OEA) is designed to ensure the district is able to bring philanthropic resources to its 56,000 students, families, teachers and administrators. Our core belief is that equity is at the cornerstone of transforming education. Together.
The OEA supports system-level priorities that will bring equity, coherence and innovation to our schools. We anticipate that, with intensely coordinated investment, there will be a direct impact on the quality of instruction, professional development, and community engagement ensuring fully-enfranchised graduates of the Boston Public Schools.
The OEA emphasizes the strength of relationships, transparency and accountability. Investment into our district is valued no matter if it is financial, service-related, or skills-based volunteering. We know that time, treasure and talent are what will bring our students into the City of Boston and the city into our classrooms. The City of Boston is our Classroom.
