With the return to local control, NPS leaders will need to work with the city’s surging charter sector to ensure opportunity and equity citywide.
CRPE's Portfolio Strategy Collaborative (PSC) is a professional learning community of city and district education leaders from across the country who are interested in implementing and advancing the portfolio strategy. Through the PSC these leaders connect about what’s working and what needs work; they share materials and resources; and they help develop the strategy as it evolves. Most of the PSC's work takes place via email -- usually with someone requesting information or materials on a particular element of the portfolio strategy. The PSC also hosts webinars, consultancies, and in-person meetings. If you have any questions or would like to join the PSC, or if you'd be interested in presenting to the PSC, please contact Jordan Posamentier, Deputy Policy Director, at email@example.com.
