Helping to Shape
in Education

Panhandle Alliance for Education: Citizens, businesses and educators building an independent, community-based foundation for public schools. Our mission is to promote excellence in education and broad-based community support for the Lake Pend Oreille School District.  

As an independent organization, we will create and sustain an endowment to provide resources in support of effective teaching, learning and school management.


The Panhandle Alliance for Education and the public school system are making a difference for our community. We are creating great schools and opportunities for successful children education. Panhandle Alliance for Education has helped turn the Lake Pend Oreille School District into a model for effective teaching, learning and management. The Alliance is now recognized for programs that deliver a strategic advantage to public education. The results have been measurable, award winning, and speak for themselves. These vital programs leverage passion, creativity, and innovation among our educators.
