Education is in an incredible time of transition. Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was mounting importance on the need for professional development to meet the ever-increasing demands of students, families, and communities along with ongoing accountability and improvement measures. This increased need of professional development for educators in PK-12 school districts has only accelerated in the wake of COVID-19. Considering this need, a new model for sustainable, mutually beneficial, relationships between PK-12 school districts and Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) is critical. A movement from the currently existing, singularly beneficial, transactional finite relationships to a sustained, mutually beneficial, transformational dyadic relationship will provide growth opportunities for both PK-12 districts and IHE’s. The proposed Relational Exchange Model for Academic Partnerships provides a conceptual framework for how PK-12 school districts and IHE’s can establish and maintain meaningful, and transformational, relationships at the organizational level.
