Engage the community
Key to APIE’s mission is effectively engaging the community in support of the educational purposes, goals and programs of Austin Independent School District. Community volunteers add to the quality and capacity of campus programs, providing a vital extension of academic, social and emotional supports to students.
Driven by a commitment to continuous improvement, APIE has developed and deployed technology solutions that support effective community and school partnerships, enabling campuses to more easily access critical volunteer, monetary, and in-kind donations. With a customized, state-of-the-art volunteer database solution, APIE has created a scalable model for leveraging community resources, and supporting more teachers and students.
Austin Partners in Education works with more than 275 city and state agencies, businesses, and organizations each year to support more than 3,500 students. APIE was founded more than 20 years ago by the Austin ISD and the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and is a 501 (c ) 3 non-profit. – less
