Pittsburgh Public Schools announces intention to reinvent classrooms

Imagine PPS is meant to bring in community groups to help improve outcomes in key areas

Aside from being a top-down review of the district’s finances, the plan brings in community groups to help give expertise and possibly money to improve issues in the district.

The key categories: Student pathways, areas of interest, school design and school/performance improvement.

The community groups stepping up to help: UPMC Children’s Hospital, Achieva, Heinz Endowment, CCAC and the Buhl Foundation, to name a few.

Over the next six months, the district will work with a specific group to figure out plans to improve classrooms and get students ready for the jobs of tomorrow.
