Forums Seek Input about High School Learning Models
The Portland school district seeks input on new, student-centered learning models that are being considered for Deering High School and Portland High School as part of the Pathways to Success initiative.
The public is invited to learn more about the models under consideration at informational sessions on April 4 and May 2. Here is the schedule for the sessions:
- May 2 at Deering High School: Presentations by the Re-Inventing Schools Coalition and Johns Hopkins Talent Development.
Presentations will take place both days from 1:30 to 3:20 p.m., 5 to 6:15 p.m. and 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. Students, parents and community members may participate in the session that is most convenient for them. Translators will be available. See more detailed information.
Pathways to Success is funded by a multi-year, $5 million grant from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation. The Portland Public Schools is partnering with Jobs for Maine’s Graduates, LearningWorks, the city of Portland’s Refugee Servicesoffice and the Portland chapter of the NAACP on the initiative.
