Partners in Education Program Kicks-Off 2019 – 2020 School Year
Published: Monday, October 28, 2019

It’s “Back to School” time and that means “Partners in Education” time.

Help keep our schools strong and connected to the business community by being involved in the Chamber’s P.I.E. Program.  This Chamber initiative began in 1984 with 4 businesses and schools participating in the 1984-85 school year and has grown each year.  The Partners in Education program promotes the collaboration of the Jefferson City area business and education communities to provide programs that enable students to achieve academic excellence and enhance economic growth with top-quality schools. The partnerships are an exchange of ideas, personnel, and available resources which serve to benefit both parties.  Today over 40 businesses and 30+ schools are involved in the program, and the partnerships include businesses of every size and schools at every level, both public and private.

If you would like more information on becoming a PIE partner, please contact Dana Struemph at the Chamber, 638-3589 or

Today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce.  Strong schools benefit the entire community.
