    School Pay logo
    School Pay is an online program that allows parents, guardians and other community members to use their credit or debit card to pay for school related items. It costs nothing to use and 100% of the money goes to the school for use in only the specified way.

    Parents and Guardians who are on a student's registration and have an email address on file are already set up with an account, and have access to all of their students in one place. Buy yearbooks, pay for a field trip, donate money to the art program, or put a deposit on an instrument rental are just some of the things that you can pay for using school pay.  Have a family member or neighbor who would like to buy something. Just open the item in School Pay, send them the link and they can check out as a guest. 
    It's quick and easy to get started, just follow the instructions in the following guide: SchoolPay Guide 
  • Support 3rd and 4th Grade on an Overnight Field Trip to Silver Falls

    Show your support on GoFundMe.
    Read more about Silver Falls
    The 3rd/4th graders from Peninsula school are excited about their overnight field trip to Silver Falls State Park in June!  We have already raised $1,200 towards our goal, but still need to raise an additional $1,500.  For many of our students this will be their first time camping, seeing a waterfall, and even their first time away from home.  This is an incredible opportunity for our students to celebrate a year of hard work and to create an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    Hello PPS families and staff,

    On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.

    This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    We want to hear from you about the 2017-18 budget for PPS! The Portland School Board has scheduled three listening sessions to take your comments on how we should allocate our dollars in the coming year.

  • From Tom Koehler, Chair of the Board of Education: Budget and Bond

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Families and Staff:

    Spring is approaching and it’s that time of year when we begin building budgets and plans for the next school year.

    I spent Monday in Salem with a fellow board member, PPS principals and educators and school districts from across Oregon to advocate for additional resources to support K-12 education and our local schools. The state is facing a shortfall of approximately $1.7 billion and the budgets proposed for K-12 from the Governor and Legislature are not adequate to maintain current levels of services.
