Program for Students with Exceptionalities

PSE Vision
Pittsburgh Public School students will be meaningful members of our school communities.  All students with disabilities will receive an equitable education that addresses individual needs in order to achieve their fullest potential academically, socially, emotionally, and vocationally. Students are expected to achieve and succeed so that they can be productive, self-motivated citizens.
PSE Mission
Each student has a right to a welcoming environment that is accessible, emotionally nourishing, culturally responsive, physically safe, purposefully engaging, and intellectually challenging.
Achieving this goal will require:
  • research-based curriculum and instruction in the least restrictive environment driven by high expectations for all students with disabilities
  • collaboration and shared responsibility of all stakeholders, including students, families, PPS staff, and community members
  • optimizing student achievement through data-driven decisions that inform assessment, instruction, and progress monitoring
  • providing teachers with professional learning, instructional support, and resources to impact student achievement
