Board of Directors
The Pittsburgh Board of Public Education is an elected body made up of nine representatives of districts within the City of Pittsburgh and the Borough of Mt. Oliver. It also serves as the Board for the Pittsburgh-Mt. Oliver Intermediate Unit, one of 29 regional Intermediate Units in Pennsylvania established to provide such services as Special Education and programs for non-public students. Board Members are elected to four-year terms.
The Board is the policy-making body for the School District. It is committed to providing the best education possible for every student by providing outstanding teachers, programs and services that enable every student to achieve their maximum potential.
As a part of its commitment to continuously improve its governance, the Board adopted its own set of Core Beliefs, Shared Goals and Commitments, found below, at its February 27, 2008 Legislative Meeting.
