SPIE Year in Review

About SPIE

Founded in 1992 by a collective of educators and employers, Stanislaus Partners in Education (SPIE) is a distinguished 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to enhancing Stanislaus County students' readiness for the transition into the professional world after high school.

Our programs and services empower K-12 educators and administrators with the tools, skills, and knowledge to guide and prepare students for local, high-quality careers.

Why We Exist

In today's rapidly evolving landscape, the synergy between education and business partnerships stands as a linchpin in addressing the growing skills gap and fostering a robust talent pipeline. These partnerships are pivotal in equipping educators and students with the practical skills, knowledge, and experiences necessary to thrive in the modern local workforce.

Collaborations between educational institutions and businesses facilitate the alignment of curriculum with industry needs, ensuring that students graduate with relevant competencies sought after by local employers.  By bridging the gap between academia and industry, these collaborations not only bolster the employability of graduates but also drive innovation and economic growth in Stanislaus County.

Our Mission

Stanislaus Partners in Education aspires to create economic vitality by supporting  efforts to prepare students for rewarding local jobs that offer pathways to a  living wage and careers that fulfill their potential.

We do this by inspiring and facilitating partnerships between educators, employers, and  community stakeholders and by actively encouraging locally targeted career education.

Stanislaus County will be an educated and skilled community that has a qualified and engaged workforce.
