Pittsburgh Public Schools is currently reaching out to the community to find out what we want our district to look like in the future.  With a projected annual shortfall of resources of approximately $50 million and a need to provide equitable and excellent public education for students in a sustainable manner, it’s critical that the entire community gets informed and provides their feedback.

Pittsburgh Public Schools has an urgency to think differently about how it delivers a 21st Century education to all students – especially during a time when revenues are flat and expenditures are increasing. The District faces the challenge of closing a $50MM budget shortfall while ensuring that the structures are in place to support its vision that 80% of Pittsburgh Public Schools students earn a post-secondary degree or workforce certification. In January 2013, the District embarked on a large scale visioning process called Envisioning Education Excellence: A Plan for All of Pittsburgh’s Students to address the current state challenges and future goals of the District. Continued engagement of students, teachers, principals, funders, and the broader community is critical to the success of this project.

In an effort to incorporate the community’s feedback on Pittsburgh Public Schools into the Envisioning work, we’d like for you to take this short survey. It should take ~10 minutes to complete and your responses will remain anonymous. We really value your feedback as it is critical to the success of our work. Your input will be used internally to assist in future decision making and evaluate proposed actions for the District.

You can find the link to the survey here: Pittsburgh Public Schools Online Survey. It will be open until Friday, June 7th.

Please forward this message along to your networks so that others can take the survey. If you want to learn more about the work we are doing, please visit our website: Envisioning Educational Excellence. You may also feel free to email with any questions.

Kind regards,

The Pittsburgh Public Schools “Envisioning Excellence” Team
