Partners in Education

Partnerships are essential to enriching our students’ academic experiences and providing personal and professional support. They can take many forms, from a local business sponsoring a school, to a parent or community member volunteering their time, to an outside organization using our facilities for community events, to making various types of donations. 

The Partners In Education (PIE) Portal is the platform City Schools now uses to track partnerships and connect local organizations with our schools.

During these uncertain times, as City Schools and our entire state and country meet new challenges every day, our partner community is more vital than ever. We hope you will join with City Schools to address the needs of our students and families. 

If you're not already registered in our PIE Portal, please apply below. If you are registered, sign-in to update your profile and add an offer, or take a moment to view the resource requests our campuses have created.

Want to help but not ready to formalize a partnership?

If you would like to make a financial donation to City Schools, visit the donor page of the Fund for Educational Excellence, a 501(c)3 non-profit that serves as our fiscal agent for these type of donations. 

If you have in-kind donations or services you would like to make to City School's campuses or students, and you are not already registered in the PIE Portal, use our informal partner donation form. We will use the information you provide to setup an offer through our PIE Portal. We will follow up with you if/when our schools contact the Engagement Office about your offer. 
Registered partners, please sign-in to your PIE Portal account and create an offer with the details of your proposed donation. This will alert campus administrators who can reach out to you directly.
