Thank you to our very generous supporters and partners who help YPIE to make a life-changing impact on thousands of students across Yonkers.
These are just a few of the many partners whose support makes our work possible.
Our Partnership with Yonkers Public Schools
We greatly appreciate our strong partnership with the Yonkers Public Schools, which includes:
Student Collaboration: YPIE works closely with partners in the schools - principals, assistant principals, guidance counselors, and teachers - to ensure that we are coordinating services for each student.
School-Based College Centers: YPIE has a College Center in each Yonkers high school so that we can work with students where they spend most of the day, in their schools.work closely to coordinate support services for our students (to provide the best support for our students)
Data Sharing Agreement: YPIE and YPS have a unique data sharing agreement that enables YPIE to track students on a broad range of metrics, including class grades, GPAs, Regents scores, College Zone attendance, and college access and persistence checkpoints (applications, SAT, etc). YPIE has developed a robust, custom system that maintains student privacy, which is populated by school district data and YPIE staff input. This data sharing ensures that YPIE can monitor student outcomes and target support.
