  • Dear Franklin Community:

    I had an opportunity to go out to the new site this week.  AMAZING is all I can say.  The drywall is up, flooring going in, and all portions of the building are moving along at lightning speed. The changes to the building highlight the old components of the space honorably.  Classrooms are spacious, bright and airy, the dance floor is in, the auditorium is taking shape, cabinetry is installed in offices and classrooms and detailing on the clock tower banisters in completed.  AMAZING.  I have also, started work with the staff steering committee on transition planning for the move. However, we are being highly cognizant that we need to do school NOW and honor the seniors in this space.  A balancing act for sure. 

    Next week will come with  staffing allocations, board decisions on snow day time finalized and ACT testing to boot!  Big week.  I look forward to filling you in on it all next week. Please scroll down and read about Athletics and the wrap up of our winter seasons-Congrats to BB going to play offs and Wrestlers off to State.  Great Showing Quakers!

    Please note the next article below is about the Auction.  If you have not done so, PLEASE support our students and school by joining us at the PTSA Auction.  This is the major fundraiser for Franklin and the benefits are too many to count.  Thank you PTSA for all your hard work on the planning and execution of this huge event.  It promises to be a great time. Hope to see you all there.

    Enjoy your week end!

  • 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, www.pps.net/dbrac.
