  • Hosford Grading Matrix

    Dear Hosford Families -

    I promised to update you on Hosford's implementation of A-F grading conversion once we had been able to finalize approvals with the district. I'm pleased to say that we have been able to get changes in place that will better reflect the full range of student progress and skill, and address concerns families have shared.

    Moving forward, A-F grade conversion will only take place two times/year: at the end of Quarter Two, and at the end of Quarter Four. All grades from Q1-2 will be reflected in the A-F grade at semester one, and all grades from Q3-4 will be reflected in the semester two grade. We have also been able to obtain an adjusted grading matrix for what constitutes a mark of Highly Proficient, Proficient, Close to Proficient, or Developing Proficiency.
  • Principal's Message 11/14

    Thursday's advisory focused on defining and discussing race, racial prejudice, and racism, and then practicing phrases a person can use to respond to racist or discriminatory language if they hear it.

    I am attaching the definitions we used, and to which we will be referring back, as well as the "Speak Up" tool we provided students (in bookmark form) and practiced using.
  • Principal's Message 11/21


    Dear Hosford Families,

    Last week, I wrote you about Hosford's commitment to welcome and support all of our students and families, and to stand against racism, sexism, xenophobia, and religious intolerance.

    As promised, this week in extended advisory on Thursday, we began talking about race and racism with students, in order to help build an understanding from which we can strengthen our school community. This is, clearly, a deep subject, and this first lesson was just an initial one. We will eventually also be addressing the other issues (sexism, xenophobia, religious intolerance) in contrast to our school values. We know that, at this age, students may struggle to process messages they receive in the media or from peers, and we want to give them tools to think critically, to respond positively, and to speak up if they encounter an unjust situation.

  • Dear Hosford Community and Families,

    We want to know the values that are important to you and that you want to see reflected in our school’s expectations of students. Our goal is to develop 3-5 values with input from students, staff, community members, and families.

    The team wants to understand what’s important to each member of our school community.

    Please share the three (3) values you believe are most important in this survey. It is our goal to have your voice reflected in the development of Hosford’s revised School-Wide Student Expectations.

    Thank you for sharing your opinion.

    The Portland Public Schools Board of Directors voted unanimously last night to approve boundary changes to Peninsula and Chief Joseph schools, both feeder schools for Ockley Green Middle School. The 7-0 vote endorses one of two proposals from the District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC), which was formed in 2014 to help with enrollment balancing across Portland Public Schools.
  • 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,
