Bridging the achievement gap
The Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) is opening an office in Santa Maria.
Located at 2601 Skyway Drive, suites A2-6 and 7, it offers parenting classes and other services to low-income and immigrant parents. The organization teaches parents how to navigate the school system and take advantage of the educational opportunities available to their children.
The Central Coast office, as it’s called, will serve parents living in communities from Paso Robles to Santa Barbara.
According to organization officials, since its inception in 1987, PIQE has graduated more than 500,000 parents and improved the lives of more than 1.5 million children.
