Subject: Follow up from PPS Meetings re: After School Process and Application

Hi After School Providers,


As you know, the Pittsburgh Public Schools recently hosted four regional meetings with community-based and faith-based after school programs to present and to receive feedback on the proposed centralized after school partnership process starting in School Year 2010-2011.  The meetings were held on March 17th at Eastminster Presbyterian Church, March 23rd at Northshore Community Alliance, March 24th at the Hill House and March 26th at Brashear Association.  A special thanks to all of those organizations for hosting the meetings.  Ninety-nine people from seventy-five organizations participated in these regional meetings.  This was an amazing turn out and it indicates the importance of and possibilities for building a city-wide after school network for youth.  Thank you for attending the meetings, as your input and feedback was extremely helpful.


A one-page overview of the process, the powerpoint presentation and a summary of the questions / ideas / issues raised are attached to this E-mail.  I expect the application to be released in early April.


Please contact me if you have any further questions, ideas or concerns, 412-622-3926 or


I thank you for participating in the meetings and I look forward to working with you. 


Best, Holly
