It’s time to start planning for the 2012-13 school year. Parents interested in enrolling in a District magnet program or a Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program for the 2012-13 school year are encouraged to attend the October 1st Magnet & CTE Program Information Fair.
Excellent neighborhood schools as well as magnet schools and programs are among the many educational offerings and options available for families of the Pittsburgh Public Schools. The Magnet & CTE Information fair provides parents an opportunity to learn about District programs that help students pursue their passion and prepare for a scholarship from the Pittsburgh Promise.

Lane shared the District’s 2011 student achievement results with District principals, staff and community members earlier this morning at the Pittsburgh Professional Development Center located in the Greenway facility.
