CIE Coalition participants provide a range of services and products to support Chess in Education, from individual schools to public or private school systems, to statewide programs. In additions we have compiled a secondary set of possible resources whose publicly available information that suggest that they may incorporate an educational perspective in their product or service offerings.
Sponsors / Foundations
The Chess in Education Initiative seeks sponsors and foundation support to grow and support a national network of CIE-trained service providers. Interested parties are invited to contact Chess in Schools, a 501(c)(3) public charity using the email form below or at the address shown on their website.
The CIE Coalition seeks engagement with local education and chess training service providers looking to expand their extracurricular chess training programs into the classroom by engaging with educators through the use of education-centric training programs.
We envision a future in which a network of local and regional education/chess training service providers are able to offer an established and certified CIE program recognized by the Education authorities. Much of the enabling infrastructure for this is already in place. Programs like this are flourishing in in Europe. ChessPlus provides such an established program in Europe under the auspices of the European Chess Union and is expanding to other continents. Chess in Schools in collaboration with ChessPlus is looking to build a network of certified CIE service providers in the US.
