    Principal Isaac Cardona

    I am thankful that I get to continue working with the students, staff, and community at Jason Lee K-8, and I am honored that I get to do so as Jason Lee’s new principal.  I originally began my teaching career in Houston, Texas, teaching 7th grade English/Language Arts, but I have had the pleasure of serving in a variety of roles since that time.  I have been an instructional coach, working to coach and develop new teachers, a Dean of Students, Executive Director of an Oregon non-profit, and most recently I served as the Assistant Principal of Jason Lee K-8.  
     
    My wife, a Portland native, and I have worked as educators for over a decade, working in schools throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, and in Taipei, Taiwan.  This past year we welcomed our first child, so we are excited to settle down in Portland, and to lay strong roots within our community.   I’m originally from New Mexico, where I graduated with degrees in Criminology and English, and I hold a Master’s degree in Public School Administration from the Teacher’s College at Columbia University in New York.  As a first generation college student, I believe that there is nothing more important than a quality education.
     
    I look forward to working with Jason Lee students, families, and community members for years to come, and I welcome you to stop by my office anytime.

    Hello Jason Lee School students, families, and staff! Words cannot express how enthusiastic I am to serve your rich community.

    My wife and I have called Portland home for the past 11 years. We have two daughters who are both PPS students at Astor School in North Portland. I was born and raised in Virginia. I graduated with a degree in Biology and, afterwards, served in the U.S. Peace Corps as an Environmental Educator. After moving to Portland and working as an animal keeper and youth mentor at the Oregon Zoo, I acquired my Master’s degree from the University of Portland and began my teaching career in PPS. I come to Lee School after having taught in 3rd through 8th grade classrooms and, most recently, supporting students and staff as a School Climate Coordinator at Ockley Green.

    The work I do is driven by a mission to create a caring and safe environment for all students while providing rich opportunities that allow them to reach their fullest potential. I believe that school should be fun, dynamic, and supportive to our students in ways that cultivate life long learners. I feel so fortunate to be part of the Lee team this year as we continue the wonderful work already occurring. I look forward to seeing you in the hallways at school and around the community!

    Dear Students, Families and Staff:

    I wanted to reach out to assure you that actions this week by the federal government to reduce protections for transgender students does not change or diminish our commitment to upholding clear PPS policies and guidelines that prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or expression.

  • 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.
