  • College Admissions Representatives:

     

    Historically, college representative visits are scheduled individually by college representatives, based upon their own discretion. PPS recognizes this practice creates barriers to access if a student happens to attend a school the college representative is not familiar with or typically does not receive applications from. As a district, we are committed to disrupting patterns of inequities around access and opportunities for our historically underserved students and the school communities we serve. College coordinators have collectively decided to require all college representatives to offer in-person a minimum of one in-person visit at one of our priority high schools, which include Roosevelt, Jefferson, and McDaniel. 

     

    With this additional requirement, we are able to expand access to college representatives for thousands of students across our district. Beginning Fall 2022, all college representatives will be required to host an in-person visit at one of our priority high schools as a prerequisite to scheduling an in-person visit at their regular rotation of high schools. College Coordinators will be the point of contact for scheduling in-person visits at their school. Once you have scheduled a visit with one of our high priority high schools, you will be able to schedule a visit at Grant through MaiaLearning. Below are the instructions for scheduling a visit through MaiaLearning. You can also watch this brief video and review this quick guide.
