Partners in Education
The Ascension Chamber of Commerce and Ascension Public Schools are working together to create opportunities to enhance interaction between community business members and our schools through a newly formed program called Ascension Partners in Education (Ascension PIE). We know that strong school partnerships build stronger communities. Your talents, resources, and expertise are valuable assets for our students and can widely expand “real world” learning at every grade level!
Our goal is simple: Match at least one business/industry partner with every school to create meaningful academic support programs that are mutually beneficial for the school and community partner. If you are interested in becoming a partner, please review the school profile sheets on this page that contain information about potential partnership activities. Once you identify a school with which you would like to partner, please contact their PIE School Coordinator (listed on the profile sheet). If both parties agree to partner, then complete and sign the one-year Partners in Education Agreement and submit to Jackie.Tisdell@apsb.org.
Partners who commit by Oct. 31, 2022, will be included in district recognitions to include a listing on the district's website, school signage, and social media.
In addition to forming official partnerships, we want to expand and strengthen our process for inviting local professionals to visit our classrooms to share stories, present their knowledge or simply read to our students. Sharing information about careers, work expertise, skills, knowledge, and/or personal talents can greatly influence even our youngest learners.
To assist in this effort, we are developing a new Directory of Guest Speakers to assist our teachers and school administrators in identifying local professionals who could best “fit” an instructional focus or subject need for the upcoming academic year. To participate, simply fill out the following form: School Guest Speaker Interest Form. The information provided on this form will be made public and shared with all our schools in hopes that impactful connections can be utilized often and throughout the school year.
We would ask that you consider “signing up” as a guest speaker and sharing this form and information about our efforts with your colleagues. It is also important that you forward this form and information to the person(s) in your company or industry who is responsible for coordinating speaking engagements and volunteer efforts to ensure all efforts are done in compliance with your company or industry’s policy.
Once again, let us thank you for your continued interest in making Ascension Parish a stronger community and for investing your time and passion in a better future for us all.
