  • End-of-Year Student Award Ceremonies

    At the end of every school year, the School-family Partnership program sponsors Student Recognition Award ceremonies for successful students across the district. These award ceremonies are essential to honor and reward students whose achievements represent the best of PPS, and to inspire their fellow students in the coming school year. We’re excited to celebrate these students and are looking forward to sharing their stories with you.

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    Hello PPS families and staff,

    On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.

    This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.

  • A big vote of confidence

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali
    Portland Public Schools Interim Superintendent, Bob McKean

    What a great day for Portland Public Schools! Voters overwhelmingly approved our bond measure, which means we can continue our plan to make our schools modern, safe and welcoming places for our students to learn and excel. I want to offer my most sincere thanks to everyone who worked so hard on the campaign – and to all of you who voted in this election. The impact will be felt for years and decades to come by generations of students and Portlanders.
