A data-sharing agreement between the Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) and the Allegheny County Department of Human Services (DHS) now makes it possible to integrate and analyze student data from the schools, human services agencies, juvenile justice and other sources. A 2010 preliminary analysis of that data offers the most comprehensive statistical profile to date of city public school students receiving services, as well as students with prior service involvement.
The following publications include data and analysis related to human services involvement among PPS students:
- An in-depth look at the human services involvement of PPS students: Disparities in Achievement: Human Services Involvement of Children in Pittsburgh Public Schools
- Brief snapshots of analysis about human service involvement of PPS students:
