Adopt a School Resource Conference

In support of McKinney ISD and Frisco ISD 

The Adopt a School Resource Conference provides a platform for stakeholders to gather together around the mutual interest in supporting our schools.

Churches and businesses who have adopted schools are invited to this unique opportunity to share best practices, communicate current and upcoming needs, brainstorm new ideas, problem solve, and strengthen relationships. Parent-teacher organizations/associations (PTOs/PTAs) are encouraged to attend. 

Those churches and businesses who have not yet adopted a school can come and learn what it would entail and gather information to determine whether it would be a good fit for your organizations.


Registration is required. For more information, email Marcy Wilson at . 


Conference Takeaways

  • Resources and ideas for ways to support your school
  • Feedback to help you plan your activities 
  • Network with other stakeholders and establish relationships to develop partnerships
  • Opportunity to communicate with multiple representatives and hear from various perspectives
  • Information to help you decide whether to adopt a school

Additional Resources

For resources about church-school partnerships and ideas for Adopt A School activities, see Loving Houston, a Christian nonprofit that helps Houston area churches support their local schools. 

Through experience with helping hundreds of churches to partner with schools, they have developed an extremely helpful list of resources and toolkits which can be downloaded. Even though their information references Houston-area schools, the information is universally applicable.

Dr. Tony Evans has developed the Adopt A School Initiative. 

They offer many resources on their website, including ways to get training for further ways to support the communities of schools. 

The videos are helpful introductions to the planning conversations that churches can have, for Adopt A School but also for community development type ministry in general. Some are free to stream and others require a small fee to access.
