The Dublin Partners in Education Foundation (DPIE) delivers highly desired educational enhancement programs that are left unfunded by other means. Since its inception in 1992, DPIE has brought together generous support from the business community, local service organizations, and citizen volunteers, to provide a diverse range of services and funding to all Dublin schools at all levels.
Summer Enrichment Academy 2013 a Success!
DPIE enthusiastically completed our second Enrichment Academy this past summer. Here are some of the highlights:
- We are a WASC candidate, as we applied for accreditation early in the year. After visits to the office and the classrooms, the team that supervised our operation unanimously endorsed the program. We'll get our official designation in January and fully expect to become WASC accredited for 2014! If we are approved, our WASC accreditation will also be retroactive for 2013.
- We ran 8 one-semester classes and 4 two-semester classes, serving a total of 256 students. More than 75% of our students were Dublin Unified residents.
- We made our first foray into offering middle school enrichment classes and we expect to continue with that next year. We'll be tweaking the length and topics of these classes, so stay tuned!
Information for the Summer 2014 Enrichment Academy will be available on this site in February of 2014, so please come back then for class lists and descriptions, cost and scholarship information, and other specific information.
