The TOSCA-Prien Innovative Education Fund (TOSCA-PIE) is a community organization dedicated to enriching education in the Newman-Crows Landing Unified School District. The Education Fund seeks to form a bond between the community and those who are creatively carrying out the education of our children. 


The TOSCA-PIE award program, in partnership with the Newman-Crows Landing School District, is committed to promote innovative education in the classroom. TOSCA-PIE requests teachers to submit proposals for classroom activities that will improve academic performance and are highly creative. Focus more on innovation and not just requests for standard technological equipment.
