PPS Partner Connect is a tool managed by PPS' College & Career Readiness Department, which makes it easy for parents, alumni, and industry professionals to connect with K-12 educators. Professionals can share their skills and expertise around their careers to bring real-world, authentic learning opportunities to our students and helping to create the next generation of innovators. Students need context for what they are learning in the classroom and through career related learning expierences you can help students and teachers connect their classroom to the world of work.
