Welcome to the 4C Program Homepage!

  • The Park Rapids School District realizes that strong partnerships between the school and local businesses are imperative for the success of its students, as well as for the betterment of the Park Rapids community as a whole. As a school district, we take pride in being a part of the community! Each year, hundreds of people volunteer in Park Rapids Area Schools. Many of our students job-shadow, volunteer, and learn from the experts in our area. We want to increase the partnerships we are building with businesses in our community - and our goal is to create partnerships that are mutually beneficial. We Hope You'll Join Us In This Effort! To coordinate this effort, the 4C (Community Career Collaboration Coordinator) position was created in concert with local businesses. If you are a business owner, career professional, community leader, volunteer, parent or student who would like to learn more about this program and connect with others, please feel free to contact Krystal Murphy.
