A+ LogoA+ Schools, an independent non-profit that advocates for improvement and equity in Pittsburgh Public Schools, will present their 2016 Report to the Community at our upcoming community meeting on Tuesday, April 11th at 7:30 pm. Similar to presentations done throughout the city, they will tailor the information specifically to schools serving our neighborhood in a PowerPoint presentation as well as have copies of the 2016 Report to the Community for all attendees.

A+ Schools’ work is mainly focused on (1) community organizing and advocacy to raise student, parent and community voices, (2) research on achievement, policies and student metrics in PPS, such as the annual Report to the Community and (3) monitoring of school board governance. More information is available on their web site at www.aplusschools.org.
