We are excited to announce our partnership with Austin ISD to implement a new volunteer management platform at austinisd.voly.org. Please note that the current APIE portal will no longer be accepting applications as of June 26.

Impact Austin Names APIE a Community Partner with $108,000 Reading Grant

We are excited to announce that Impact Austin has named Austin Partners in Education as a 2011 Community Partner! The grant award of $108,400 will allow us to empower more than 500 6th grade students to become stronger, more independent readers.  We will continue to serve Webb Middle School and will expand the program to another middle school over the next two years. Students will perfect their reading in the new Reading Stars program, and will bolster their fluency and vocabulary by creating their own book- on-tape. The recorded stories will be shared with children at a partner elementary school.

APIE is profoundly grateful for the support from Impact Austin and we are proud to be counted as a partner with this outstanding organization of women. We also thank our friends at Webb Middle School, especially Principal Ray Garcia, Asst. Principal Valerie Torres-Solis and the wonderful children who shared their Classroom Coaching experiences with our Impact Austin guests.

Our call for volunteers for 6th Grade Reading Classroom Coaching begins in August. Plan to participate in this exciting new opportunity by helping a middle school child in your community become a Reading Star.

We thank our founders, Austin Independent School District and Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and our other Webb programs funders: Applied Materials Foundation, JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, KDK-Harman Foundation, and  Intel Corporation for their support in serving our students.
