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 

Partners will be included in district recognitions to include a listing on the district's website, school signage, and social media.

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.
