Austin Partners in Education (College Readiness)
 
 
 
Austin Partners in Education (APIE) creates and fosters effective community and school partnerships that provide all Austin Independent School District (Austin ISD) students preparation for college and career. The VISTA project will seek to expand APIE program capacity focused on Austin ISD's under-resourced schools (including those in the Dove Springs neighborhood) to meet the tremendous need for low-income student academic and personal support from elementary through high school. Currently serving a student population that is 90% economically disadvantaged, APIE expects to support at least 3,300 students each year over the three-year course of the project. To meet the overarching objectives of the project: a) Developing and implementing a volunteer and community support strategy for targeted Austin ISD schools and b) Placing more adult volunteers in the classroom to work with high-needs students at Title I schools.
