PIQE Statewide Training
PIQE Executive and Associate Directors from our regional offices in California attended an extensive three day training on the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and how parents can support their children through this transition.  PIQE is always committed to partner with schools to ensure parents have  the  knowledge and tools to support their children's education.

We are looking forward to implementing these changes and continue helping parents and their children.

Principal's Corner 

Michelle Nunley, Ed.D., Principal Tulare Union High School

"It's been my pleasure to work with PIQE for the past eight years.  Throughout this time I've had the opportunity to witness first-hand, the positive impact PIQE has on our parents and their children.  Year after year we continue to invest in PIQE and in our parents.  We are excited to work together again this year and see the new curriculum on Common Core Standards that PIQE will be implementing.  I am continually impressed with PIQE's ongoing support of our students and strengthening the parent-school partnership."    


Mathew Barnett, Ph.D. Principal Nicolas Junior High School

PIQE has had a very positive impact on the parents at Nicolas Junior High.  The parents are more connected to our school as a result of the information they have received in the PIQE classes, they ask more questions about their students' academic performance and they have an understanding about what it takes to be college and career ready.  Parents comment to me year after year how much they enjoy our PIQE classes and it has become a pivotal part of our school's program.
