'Every community behind every child'
MAPE has served as a network of educators and community partners since 1984 and is one of just a few statewide partnership organizations of its kind in the U.S. We received 501 (c)(3) non-profit status in 1994.
Our mission: MAPE is committed solely to providing training and materials to help build local support for the success of all students.
Networking through membership and regional meetings.
Partnership training through our State Conference, Partnership Curriculum and site-based consulting.
It's a Fact: School Partnerships Make a Positive Impact
