Bainbridge Island Public School Supporters is a grassroots, citizen-based campaign organization that works to help pass Bainbridge Public School bonds and levies. Our mission is to inform voters about upcoming school bond and levy measures and to direct efforts toward ensuring their passage. As a permanent political organization, we are a passionate voice for encouraging support for local funding of our schools.
BIPSS is comprised of volunteers who work long hours together (eating popcorn and missing Seahawks’ games) to meet its mission.
BIPSS receives its funding from private corporate and individual donors committed to the quality and success of all Bainbridge Island public schools.
The 2016/2017 BIPSS Steering Committee includes Erin Cyger, Anna Steen, Jason Shutt, John Hobbs, Emily Wachsman, Lynn Smith, and Mev Hoberg.
Advisory Supporters include Peter Bang-Knudsen, Margaret Powers, Ian Forbes, Erin Jennings.
Other Team Members include Jeff Logan, Jill Johnston, Alli Schuchman, Mike McCloud, Heather Palmer, Sarah Albee, Kylee Stanton-Hicks, Stephanie Buffkin, Michelle Byron, Frank Ducceschi, and Maegan Blackwell.
