PPS earns state Excellence in Workforce Readiness award

The Portsmouth Public Schools (PPS) was named an Excellence in Workforce Readiness Award Winner by the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) at the annual VSBA Conference on Education.

PPS took home third place in the state for school divisions with student populations above 10,001 students for its Health Sciences Career Development Program. In PPS, the Health Sciences Career Development Program provides students classroom instruction and clinical practice in preparation for work in the health field. Students prepare to assist physicians and therapists in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, through hands-on clinical experiences at health facilities.

According to the VSBA, this awards program was created in 2018 by the VSBA Task Force on Workforce Readiness to highlight exemplary programs in Virginia’s Public Schools focused on preparing the state’s future workforce.
