Partners In Education
Established in 1983, Tulsa’s Partners In Education program is a joint effort between the Tulsa Regional Chamber, Tulsa Public Schools and Union Public Schools. The program connects children and teachers with corporate, education, volunteer, government and civic leaders. These partnerships help educators improve the academic and personal growth of all children.
The mission of PIE is to unite businesses and the community with schools for the common goal of increasing the quality of education for all students in Tulsa Public Schools while involving the community in the development of its own economic future.

For partners: Why PIE?
If you volunteer time at a school, provide a service or donate money to a school, you are a partner in education. A partnership can involve anything from donating time to read to young elementary students, to coordinating and managing a unique extracurricular program. Every resource helps, and the sky is the limit when it comes to partnership opportunities. This community engagement allows for students to experience academic and personal growth, all while developing the next generation of our region's workforce.

For schools: Finding partners
Pitching Partners in Education to prospective partners is easy because school partnerships benefit both sides. The keys are to identify existing but unrecognized partnerships and find organizations with which you or your students or staff have connections.
Once you have a partner, encourage them to sign up on Partners In Education's website.
