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 2018/2019 BIPSS Committee includes Ian Forbes, Jason Shutt, Mark Emerson, Erin Jennings, Lynn Smith, Margaret Powers, Bruce Weiland, Peter Bang-Knudsen, Dave Trageser, Mike Spence, Mev Hoberg, Mairead Shutt, Reese Ande, Jeff Logan, Mike McCloud, Dave Manning and Lucas Nalley.
