  • Superintendent Column: Thank You for an Incredible Year

    As we close out the 2018-19 school year, I want to thank you, our educators and staff, for an incredible year. Over the last two weeks, 2,380 students earned their diploma from Saint Paul Public Schools. Our graduates are leaving SPPS prepared and ready to pursue their dreams in college, career and life. We should all be incredibly proud.

  • Teachers-only crowdfunding sites

    Many SPPS teachers have discovered that DonorsChoose is an easy way to bring needed materials into the classroom. You may have heard that 3M “flash funded” all DonorsChoose projects posted by SPPS teachers in December, and that a national cryptocurrency company flash funded every project in the U.S. just last month.
