What is JIEP?
The Janesville International Education Program (JIEP) promotes cross-cultural understanding between our community and those around the world through the implementation of strategic programming and curriculum for local and international students and educators. JIEP coordinates collaboration and interactions between the School District of Janesville and our international partners in education by organizing and managing programs that support our Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreements. These MoUs contain the following objectives:
- Promote global education.
- Strengthen relationships and broaden international understanding and appreciation for each partner’s leaders, teachers, students, community, and cultures.
- Encourage the development and exchange of cultural ideas and practices.
- Provide shared development opportunities for each partner’s leaders, teachers, students, and community members.
These objectives provide a pathway for our local Janesville students, teachers, administrators, and community members to engage in international experiences, establish personal connections, share professional resources, and form new friendships around the world.
