  • NEW! Important Information for Applicants:

    Portland Public Schools is excited to announce we have a new online employment application system coming mid-December. 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-December, 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.

Our goal is to provide excellent support to our customers to allow them to spend more time on the core mission of the District: providing quality education to our students.
