Hillsborough County Public School System entered into a lease with First Presbyterian Church to house a K-5th grade elementary school. Hillsborough County Public School System contracted with Easter Seals to provide pre-k instruction and before and after school care at the school. The Downtown Partnership Elementary School is an excellent example of an innovative and creative public-private partnership which addresses some critical issues facing the school district. Reusing an existing facility within walking distance of the downtown employment center has made quality education and increased parental involvement possible.
