PPS-SF Director of Policy Speaks on KQED Forum

The California State Board of Education launched a new website to help families understand how the state now assesses school achievement. The new measures of success go beyond test scores and seek to address issues of equity and other indicators. 

 Miranda Martin signed the famous KQED Forum wall with "Strong Schools. Strong City," in honor of PPS-SF.
