Community Partners for Middle School Success (CPMSS) is a funders collaborative working to improve educational attainment for students at Shaw and Garry middle schools in Spokane.  In the long-term, this initiative is expected to lead to an improvement in the on-time graduation rates at Rogers High School, as well as increase the number of Rogers High School students enrolling in post-secondary education.

Collectively, the CPMSS will provide up to  $400,000 over the next three years as a catalyst to improve how local nonprofits interact with Spokane Public Schools and provide support for kids who are at risk of dropping out of school. 

The CPMSS partners are: Avista Foundation; Empire Health Foundation; Harriet Cheney Cowles Foundation; John J. Hemmingson; Inland Northwest Community Foundation; JPMorgan Chase Foundation; Numerica Credit Union; and Women Helping Women Fund.
