Human Resources

  • Human Resources partners with District leadership to recruit, develop, and support a culturally diverse workforce dedicated to the highest standards of equity and achievement that creates an environment of empowerment and success for our students, employees, and the communities we serve.

  • Important Information for Applicants:

    Portland Public Schools is excited to announce we have a new online employment application system coming mid-February. What does this mean for you?  If you wish to apply to any jobs after our new online employment application system is up and running in mid-February, you must complete a new application. You will no longer be able to access your current PPS application once this happens. We will continue to keep you updated. Thank you for your patience during our transition.
