High schools: taking stock, looking ahead

November 29, 2012
PPS launched changes to its high school system in fall 2011 to ensure access for all students to a high quality academic program in their neighborhoods as well as the choice of specialized focus schools. A year later, PPS is examining how our high schools are doing and engaging the community in taking stock and looking ahead.
