Partners in Education (PiE) is the Education Alliance’s flagship program. There are more than 150 current success stories confirming the effectiveness of business/industry working with schools and educators to raise the quality of education in our community. We spotlight these impactful relationships regularly to recognize the important work being done through these partnerships and to inspire others to get involved. With 65,000 students in the Washoe County School District and 40,000 students at Truckee Meadows Community College and the University of Nevada, there is much work to be done in helping our students to become college and career ready.
