All students learning by developing high-quality educators through individualized support


PPAP builds a common, collaborative culture of high expectations and professionalism through the provision of specific, clear, purposeful and immediate feedback and support for improvement. The program works collaboratively with site and district administration to support district initiatives.  Through coaching, individualized support, and professional learning, the program develops high quality, reflective new and veteran educators. Teachers are provided the opportunity to enhance teaching skills and obtain the Clear credential through job-embedded professional learning. The program provides ongoing, flexible and in-the-moment coaching by highly-qualified and trained Teacher Consultant/Mentors who are released full time. Teachers are provided with data-driven, standards-based feedback which promotes reflection and new learning to advance their skills and meet rigorous standards of instructional practice. To ensure program quality and fidelity, a joint Governance Board oversees and monitors the program, the needs of the teachers, and aligns additional support to provide every opportunity for growth. The success of the program is founded in the collaborative effort between the PFT and PUSD.
