Welcome to Partner Connect!

Jay Keuter -

PPS Partner Connect is our platform which makes it easy for parents, alumni, and industry professionals to volunteer and get involved with PPS. With the launch of this portal for partners, we hope to improve communication and engagement as well as utilize our partner profile information to develop targeted strategies that are inclusive to all students in our schools.

From this dashboard you can edit your profile, access informational resources, and view program and contact information from schools and programs. Coming this fall you'll be able to view opportunities to get at our schools and programs, track your contributions, and we'll be populating data views on PPS partnership and career learning information.
