Welcome to PPS of Greenwood & Leflore County
PPS of Greenwood & Leflore County (PPSGLC) is a multi-district and multi-functional organization. Our greatest desire is to help schools disrupt the cycle of low-performing schools and help them become high-performing schools. Together we can make this happen.
PPSGLC will bring together parents from diverse backgrounds and other education stakeholders in a working relationship to improve and strengthen our local public schools. Parents will participate in our Parent Engagement Program (PEP) where they will become equipped with the skills and tools needed for impacting student achievement. Parents will be empowered to become active problem solvers and equal partners in the educational process of all children in both districts.
PPSGLC will strive earnestly to cross racial, cultural, and socio-economic barriers to develop partnerships and mobilize parents, community leaders, and businesses in the city and county in order to promote the best education for all students.
We will also teach parents how to become engaged in local, state, and national issues impacting education. By using PPS’ strategies, techniques and resources, together with dedicated stakeholders, much can and will be successfully achieved.
