Pittsburgh Public schools partener up with Urban Impact and the Pittsburgh Steelers to promote the transition and unity of the new school assignments on the North Side.Thursday, June 7th, 2012
This past week Oliver High School ,Perry High School as well as Martin Luther King Elementary(Pittsburgh KING) and Northview Elelmentary (closing and receiving schools) partnered with Urban Impact to provide a community event to promote the transition and unity of the new school assignments on the North Side.
In November the Board approved the closure of the two schools as part of the District’s Realignment Plan. The District Realignment Plan addresses the District’s under-enrolled classrooms that result in unnecessary costs to taxpayers, through School Closings, Feeder Pattern Changes, and Adjustments to the Educational Delivery Model. Due to school closings, for the start of the 2012-13 school, Pittsburgh Oliver students will transition to Pittsburgh Perry, and Northview elementary students will transition to Pittsburgh KING . Ongoing efforts are taking place to collect input, share expertise and facilitate the upcoming transition in support of students and staff.
