  • Street Safety Improvements

    Through the Portland Bureau of Transportation's Fixing Our Streets program, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is expecting to make a large investment in safety improvements around Portland schools in the next few years. This spring we're asking families to help us figure out what is needed most. In collaboration with PPS, we will be hosting open houses in each high school cluster.

    We are excited to invite your school community to participate in the SRTS Fixing Our Streets open house for the Madison Cluster - Wednesday, April 12, from 6-8 pm at Scott School, 6700 NE Prescott. This event will help inform where and how the City’s Bureau of Transportation will spend $695,000 in the cluster.

    The purpose of the open house is to listen to families and school staff about safety concerns around their school and to identify major routes used to walk and roll to the schools. Safe Routes to School is excited to help make these routes safer and more enjoyable for your families.

    You are also invited to join me on our Community Walk on Wednesday, April 19 at 2:30PM where we will actually walk the route between Scott and Hacienda to experience the route and give specific input.

  • 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.

  • 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.
