We just wanted to remind families that as part of the terms with Portland Association of Teachers (PAT) to turn a planning day into an instructional day to make up for school closures this winter, the district agreed that third quarter report cards/progress reports will only be mandatory for students that meet the following criteria:
Please know that at any time you can communicate directly with your child’s teacher to discuss your child’s progress and understand how your child is performing in school.
Also know that end of year report cards/progress reports will be delivered to all families upon completion of the school year in accordance with the regular schedule.
If you have any questions about the original announcement, please go to: http://www.pps.net/quarter3
Solamente queríamos recordarles a las familias que como parte de los términos con la Asociación de Maestros de Portland (PAT, por sus siglas en inglés) para convertir un día de planeación en un día instruccional con el propósito de recuperar el tiempo perdido por los cierres escolares durante el invierno, el distrito acordó que los boletines de calificaciones/reportes de progreso solamente serán obligatorios para los estudiantes que cumplan con los siguientes requisitos:
Es importante que sepa que en cualquier momento se puede comunicar directamente con el maestro/a de su hijo/a para hablar acerca de su progreso y entender cómo le va a su hijo/a en la escuela.
Además, debe saber que los boletines de calificaciones/reportes de progreso de final de año se entregarán a todas las familias cuando se termine el año escolar de acuerdo con el horario regular.
Si tiene alguna pregunta acerca del anuncio original, por favor diríjase a:http://www.pps.net/quarter3
Please congratulate all who participated. They all were fantastic and made Benson Tech proud!
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.
CORRECTION: 2nd budget listening session is Tuesday, April 25
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.
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.
