  • Nine of our schools earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR rating

    At a ceremony on February 10 at Wilson High School in SW Portland, nine PPS schools were recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for achieving ENERGY STAR certification. To receive this certification, a building must perform in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. ENERGY STAR schools use an average of 35% less energy, and also release 35% less carbon dioxide.

  • Enrollment balancing for Peninsula, Chief Joseph and Ockley Green

    Soomaaliga Español Tiếng Việt
    The District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) was formed in 2014 to help with enrollment balancing across Portland Public Schools. The committee’s most recent work led them to propose two options to help relieve crowding at Chief Joseph and to create more robust enrollment at Peninsula starting in the 2017-18 school year. On January 30, 2017, Interim Superintendent Bob McKean endorsed one of two DBRAC proposals.

    The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at,

  • Health, Safety and Modernization Bond 2017: Invitation for feedback

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

    Dear PPS Families and Community:

    Portland schools are in critical need of repair. Most were built before World War II, and many are in need of renovation and upgrade to provide students with modern learning environments and to address unsafe conditions. Testing last summer showed that 99 percent of our schools have at least one cold water fixture that tested above acceptable EPA levels of lead. Many of our schools’ roofs are beyond their useful life, and some frequently leak. Fire safety systems at most schools are insufficient, and 42 of PPS’ schools lack sprinkler systems in case of a fire.

    This week, Portland Public Schools staff presented several options for a May 2017 Health, Safety, and Modernization Bond to the Board of Education, which would continue PPS’ long-term plan to modernize and improve the health, safety, and learning environments at every school through a series of capital construction bonds.
