Parents in Education Grants

Parents in Education Grant Program

The Parents in Education (PIE) grant program is designed to award grants to school communities that undertake projects in alignment with the Parent Engagement in Learning Strategy of the Government of South Australia. 

The program is supported through the Office of the Minister for Education, Training and Skills, Government of South Australia.

The funding is intended for projects that assist parents and caregivers to become involved in their child's education and promote learning at home through constructive relationships with schools.
