School Board restores programs with PPIE’s Help!

Positions funded by PPIE’s commitment of $330,000

PPIE fully supports the mission of ensuring QUALITY education across all sites for all students. The Instructional Coaching model provides job-embedded professional development – in other words, IN the classroom training and support for teachers – which will reach all students at all levels.

PPIE committed – and PUSD accepted – $330,000 to fund 4 additional positions for next year:

  • Instructional Coach – Technology (Scott Padway returning)
  • Instructional Coach – Math (new addition)
  • Instructional Coach (2) – Early Literacy (new additions)

But we’re not done yet! It is time for our Annual Spring Push as we head toward the end of the Giving Fund 2015-16 Campaign on March 31st. What more can we do to finish the year strong and provide additional technology and support for our students? Watch for events coming soon at your school sites, and if you haven’t already done so, please make your Annual Donation now!
