with a Promise scholarship
March 12, 2020
As the region works to lessen the spread of Covid-19, The Pittsburgh Promise is taking a number of preventative actions to keep our community safer and to serve our students effectively.
We are offering a work from home option to our staff, canceling nonessential large meetings, and postponing upcoming events. Day to day work will continue without interruption. We are communicating with our post-secondary partners who are working hard to keep their students safe while maintaining high instructional standards. We are communicating with our students and assuring them that we will do all that we can to ensure that they are successful despite this significant disruption to their lives. We want them to know that as always, we have their backs.
The Promise team will work together, remain positive, wash our hands, and continue to advocate for students despite these unfortunate circumstances.
