History[edit] The formation of Pittsburgh’s public schools was due to the passing of the Pennsylvania
Free Public School Act of 1834. This act provided government aid for the establishment of a city school system which included the creation of four wards that were self-governed. Twenty years later, the wards were disbanded, and the Central Board of Education was founded. This board would govern the entire school district which would consist of nine wards or sub- districts. The first city superintendent of schools was elected in 1868. In 1911, the School Code of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
modified the existing system to include a Board of Public education that would oversee sixty-one sub-districts and two central boards. The Public School Code (Title 22) of 1949 further regulated the provisions and establishment of Pennsylvania
state schools. .[1] Rankings[edit] The following 2012-2013 rankings are based solely on mandatory Pennsylvania
System of School Assessment (PSSA) testing of 11th grade students in reading and math. Only public high schools participate in PSSA testing.[6]

Academics[edit] Accelerated Learning Academies[edit] As part of the final right-sizing plan approved by the Board in February 2006, eight of the poorer performing schools were transformed into Accelerated Learning Academies (ALAs).[8] The eight schools were: Arlington Accelerated Learning Academy (K–8, two campuses), Colfax Accelerated Learning Academy (K–8), Fort Pitt Accelerated Learning Academy (Elementary), Martin Luther King Accelerated Learning Academy (K–8), Murray Accelerated Learning Academy (K–8), Northview Accelerated Learning Academy (Elementary), A. J. Rooney Accelerated Learning Academy (Middle), Weil Technology Accelerated Learning Academy (K–8).[9] These schools were put on a longer school year calendar[10] with 10 extra days, as well as a longer school day adding 45 minutes of instructional time.[11] The ALAs use the America's Choice Design Model,[12] developed by the National Center on Education and the Economy. Kaplan Curriculum[edit] In early 2006 the district contracted with Kaplan K12 Learning Services to develop a core curriculum for grades 6 through 12. The core curriculum will be phased in over the course of three years: during the 2006-7 school year the district will implement the new curriculum for English in grades 6–10 and Math in grades 6, 9 and 10; in 2007-8 English in grades 11 and 12, Math in grades 7 and 11, and Science in grades 6–11 will start; and Math grade 8, and Social Studies grades 6–11 will start in 2008-9. Lesson plans and curriculum coaching will be provided to teachers, and the students will undergo benchmark testing every 6 weeks to assess student progress. Each school will have curriculum coaches on-site to aid teachers and provide them with professional development. The Key Concepts presented in the curriculum will be aligned with the state standards tested for in the Pennsylvania
System of School Assessment annual tests.[13] In July, 2010, Bill Gates noted that the school system is a model due to its teacher performance initiatives.[14] Signature[edit] The district trademark was created with the Design Department of Carnegie Mellon University. The colorful central building blocks and the Pittsburgh
Public Schools logotype together form the PPS "signature." The multi-colored building blocks are closely associated with children and child development. They represent the multi-cultural community of Pittsburgh
and the diversity of the programs and students in the district. The blocks are also versatile in that they can be used in any media either in color or black and white.[15] The Pittsburgh
Promise[edit] On December 13, 2006 Pittsburgh
Mayor Luke Ravenstahl
Luke Ravenstahl
and then Superintendent Mark Roosevelt
Mark Roosevelt
announced The Pittsburgh
Promise initiative. Starting in 2008 The Promise will make available to all graduates satisfying the criteria a scholarship to any accredited post-secondary institution within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The $5–7 million per year necessary to fund this will be raised through private contributions from foundations and corporations.[16] The Pittsburgh
Promise is similar to an existing program in Kalamazoo, Michigan known as the Kalamazoo Promise. A joint City and School District task force will be formed to develop the plan. Work has been done by the District's High School Reform Task Force and the Mayor's Business and Economic Development Committee.[17] In January 2007 the Pittsburgh
Federation of Teachers made the first contribution to The Pittsburgh
Promise scholarship program. The donation by the union was to show the teachers' support for the program.[18] In 2008, the University of Pittsburgh
Medical Center made a $10 million donation with a commitment for as much as $90 million in additional matching funds over the next nine years.[19] Board of education[edit] The Pittsburgh
Public Schools have an elected nine-member Board, who serve without pay. Each member represents a geographic region of the City, and serves for a four-year term.[20] As of December 7, 2015, the members are:[21]

Dr. Regina Holley (President) – District 2 Sylvia Wilson (First VP) – District 1 Terry Kennedy (Second VP) – District 5 Thomas Sumpter – District 3 Lynda Wrenn – District 4 Moira Kaleida – District 6 Cynthia Falls – District 7 Kevin Carter – District 8 Carolyn Klung – District 9

In 2009, US News and World report ranked 21,000 public high schools, in the United States, based on three factors. First, the schools were analyzed for the number of students who achieved above the state average on the reading and math tests in 2008. Then they considered how the economically disadvantaged students performed against the state average. Finally, they considered the participation rate and the performance of students in college readiness by examining Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate test data. Seventy Pennsylvania
high schools achieved ranking bronze, silver or gold rating. Fifty three Pennsylvania
high schools achieved bronze.[23] Eight high schools in Allegheny County and 2 Pittsburgh
School District high schools achieved inclusion in the ranking. Brashear High School and Pittsburgh
Creative and Performing Arts achieved Bronze ranking. Special
