 Promoting TIES


As you assess the interest and need for TIES, it is important to consider the financial, administrative and staff support available, as well as the existing resources that may be complementary to TIES.  The successful implementation of TIES is a joint effort among the TIES Coordinator, School District Administrator and the community. TIES can be initiated by any of these individuals. An essential first step is to market TIES to the individual who will be funding the program which is usually the school district and/or community.
