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 Scholarsprogram 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

  • Tuesday, January 17: All schools and offices closed

    This was a difficult decision. We know that school closures impact families in many ways, disrupting work schedules, childcare, in addition to classroom instruction for the nearly 49,000 students we serve.

      Facilities staff have been clearing parking lots and pathways, like here at West Sylvan.

    We continue to work to get schools ready to open tomorrow. Ice is our biggest barrier and concern, and the safety of students and staff is our priority.

    The vast majority of our schools have been cleared of snow yet, there are still a significant number that have walkways and other paths covered in ice, which we are working to clear today.

    We want to update you on the status of our work to prepare our schools for the safe return of staff and students. Since Wednesday, our dedicated custodians and maintenance staff have been working very long hours to clear pathways, manage building power, plumbing and heat to ensure all of our utilities are operational given the freezing conditions that can impact pipes and electricity.
