  • Next Steps: Enrollment Balancing

    Dear Portland Public Schools Community,
    I accepted the role of Interim Superintendent of Portland Public Schools (PPS) at a challenging moment in time. During my first month on the job, I initiated an assessment of the programmatic and system priorities identified by the Board of Education for the 2016-17 school year. After these priorities were established, a number of additional priorities emerged that also require attention:

  • Indoor rowing education comes to Portland Public Schools

     Recent Erg Ed event in Seattle WA.
    PPS has been awarded the 2016-2017 Erg Ed Grant. This grant provides erg equipment, access to the Erg Ed Curriculum, and comprehensive teacher training throughout the year.
  • PPS employee recognized as a hero
