Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Portland Evening Scholars!

    We are looking forward to a great year as we continue to prepare to support Portland students in their journey towards graduation. 

    We will be offering approximately 35 course sections across 4 nights each week for the duration of our two 14 week semesters and we will hire approximately 55 staff to make this happen. 

    We will provide highly qualified teachers and tutors to assist our students with their academics and we are very excited to be partnering with Portland Public School’s Virtual Scholars program where some courses will be offered online. 

    Our staff is dedicated in the work they do and they show this every night by unconditionally welcoming their students into the classrooms and providing them a safe place to learn.  We are on a compacted calendar with a lot to cover in a shorter amount of time so we do stress the importance of maintaining a safe and respectful learning environment.   

    Our program is an NCAA approved program and our teachers follow Portland Public School’s curriculum calendars for the subjects they teach. 

    If there is anything we can help you with or answer any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. 


    Thank you and welcome back to school, Portland!


    Mr. David Holm 

    Program Administrator

  • 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.

    Budget overview

    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

    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.
