Pittsburgh Public Schools Future Ready Comprehensive Plan
As part of its December 21, 2022, Legislative Session, the Board approved the final Pittsburgh Public Schools state-required Future Ready Comprehensive Plan. Pennsylvania school districts must submit a plan that includes district goals and action items. The final plan, informed by a steering committee made up of board members, parents, students, administrators, staff members, community partners, and the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers, includes research and evidence-based strategies to address four prioritized challenges based on state-identified essential practices and student data:
- Supporting schools in implementing research and evidence-based instructional strategies and programs to ensure all students have access to rigorous, standards-aligned instruction,
- Coordinating and monitoring support aligned with student and family needs,
- Recruiting and retaining fully credentialed experienced and high-quality teachers; and
- Allocating resources, including money, staff, professional learning, materials, and support to schools based on the analysis of a variety of data.
The Board approved the final plan following a public commentary period.
