Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) contracted ConnectED to conduct a feasibility study to identify the need to create a career exploration-focused middle school and identify the needs, strengths, and opportunities for growth to develop a district-wide comprehensive career exploration strategy that will serve all district middle school students. The readiness assessment and feasibility study identify the district’s assets that can be opportunities for growth. ConnectED provides recommendations for the next steps which will include aligning the middle school strategy to Pittsburg Public School district high school career pathways efforts.
