• Alert:

    If you are a resident of the Woodland Hills School District, this message contains important information. Until bus transportation is restored, Woodland Hills School District is offering you one of two options: 

    1. They will provide a Pittsburgh Regional Transit Connect Card

    2. They will provide mileage reimbursement to parents

    If you are driving your scholar and want mileage reimbursement, you MUST complete this form and mail it to the Woodland Hills Administration Building, 531 Jones Avenue, North Braddock, PA 15104. You are required to complete a daily log with mileage in order to be reimbursed. Woodland Hills School District will check attendance with your Propel School for each scholar that a parent is submitting reimbursement for. The reimbursement rate is the IRS mileage rate, which is 62.5 cents per mile for the remainder of 2022. Please note that Woodland Hills SD’ policy is that a scholar cannot have more than one form of transportation, meaning they cannot have a Connect Card, a school bus, and parent mileage reimbursement. 

    This update only pertains to residents of the Woodland Hills School District.

Propel Educators Convene with Researchers to Shift Power in Educational Research

Photos of cohorts

Five Propel educators have been selected to participate in the cohort of 20 educators who are playing an important role in the design and implementation of an innovative equity-focused research process that positions Black and Latinx educators as research leaders. 

Shifting Power in Educational Research and Development is a collaboration between Remake Learning and the University of Pittsburgh School of Education — funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation — that aims to shift power dynamics inherent in many research and development (R&D) infrastructures. 

Of the 20 educators selected for this one-year initiative, the Propel educators are:

  • Alesha Clinton, Propel Braddock Hills High School
  • Amil Cook, Propel Andrew Street High School
  • Alonna Cuffe, Propel Braddock Hills High School
  • Jason Orr, Propel Homestead
  • Judith Williams-Wright, Propel Braddock Hills High School

Participating educators and 20 researchers will be paired to co-develop and implement research projects in the educators’ learning spaces. With the support of their research partner and a deeply place-based, emancipatory R&D infrastructure (based on the work of Dr. Temple Lovelace), participating educators will be positioned to lead and address their own questions and problems of practice. Research teams will collaborate to share their findings and produce outputs such as specific practices, products, services, processes, technologies, materials, software, data, or other innovations.
