Our mission is to provide financial support for innovative educational projects not ordinarily available through the districts’ operating budgets.
Foundation Activities and Projects
The Partnership for Inspired Education has helped all of our Community School Districts with various projects. The PIE Foundation has been established to provide funds to enhance the learning of the students.
The Foundation Committee will work with staff, parents, and students to determine the best use of the funds raised including scholarships, funds for enrichment activities, encourage excellence through creative teaching, grants for creative ideas and programs, and to promote community awareness of school programs.
In addition, the foundation is a vehicle for individuals, businesses, and organizations to share resources and gifts with the school community including establishing scholarships and memorial scholarships.
What types of projects and activities are funded?
Initiatives and equipment which will enhance educational opportunities such as:
Seminars, workshops and other opportunities for educators which will enhance creative teaching and computer assisted instruction skills.
