Special Meeting for Pgh Public School's Key Communicators

School closings and Accelerated Learning Academies will be the talk of the town for the next few weeks, if not the next year. If you are engaged in the community and think that our schools play a role in community --- duhh --- , then you'll want to attend this presentation. The Pittsburgh Public School District (Right-Sizing) Reorganization Plan, directed by the new superintendent, Mark Roosevelt, is slated for its community roll-out from 6 to 8 pm on Thursday, November 10, 2005 in Conference Room A, at the Board of Education Building.

All parents are invited and encouraged to attend!

RSVP to Donna Vlassich by calling and leaving a message, 412-622-3619.

I attended a meeting with Mark Roosevelt at Langley yesterday. The other speaker was Dr. Martin Johnson. Last week I was at another meeting with the superintendent in Frick Middle School.

The slides from yesterday's presentation about the new types of schools that are going to be rolled out for next year should be on the PghBOE.Net site. (not yet) The RAND presentation about school performance is working.

The main office for Pgh Public Schools is in Oakland, across the street from the Pitt's Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Chapel. The front yard of the PPS building has the little A-B-C Dino statue. Don't confuse this four-legged A-B-C dino with 'Dippy,' the huge, long-necked one near the Carnegie Library / Music Hall. The two are on the same street but other corners.
