Excellence in Education

Excellence in Education serves SUSD in two key ways. 

 1. Empower educators with resources to implement elite programming at their schools 

2. Ensure student’s have access to programs by covering fees associated with educational experiences.

Excellence in Education protects unfunded programs and educational experiences in our district. Every year, EIE helps 21 schools and 16,000 students.
