Vashon Partners in Education (PIE) is a non-profit charity whose goal is to enhance the learning environment in our public schools. We do this by funding activities and materials requested by those closest to the educational process — our teachers. Chautauqua, McMurray, and Vashon High School teachers, staff, and other community members are encouraged to submit grant proposals identifying specific needs or opportunities not addressed by the existing school budget. Grants are evaluated on educational value, innovation, need, and impact. Proposals are evaluated annually in late fall and monies disbursed upon approval.
We are getting ready to kick off our fall fundraising for the 2014-2015 school year. Watch out for our brochure in the mail, or download an electronic version here.
Thank you to everyone who donated to PIE in 2013—we were able to grant over $47,000 in grants to 40 teachers in the Vashon School District, for use in the 2013-2014 school year. Visit our Grant History page to see the list of 2013 grants.
