Dear Jefferson High School Cluster,
Through the Portland Bureau of Transportation's Fixing Our Streets program, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is expecting to make a large investment in safety improvements around Portland schools in the next few years. This spring we're asking families to help us figure out what is needed most. In collaboration with PPS, we will be hosting open houses in each high school cluster.
We are excited to invite your school community to participate in the SRTS Fixing Our Streets open house for the Jefferson Cluster - Thursday, April 20, from 6-8 pm at Ockley Green MS, 6031 N Montana. This event will help inform where and how the City’s Bureau of Transportation will spend the money in the cluster.
The purpose of the open house is to listen to families and school staff about safety concerns around their school and to identify major routes used to walk and roll to the schools. Safe Routes to School is excited to help make these routes safer and more enjoyable for your families.
Dear Students, Families and Staff:
I wanted to reach out to assure you that actions this week by the federal government to reduce protections for transgender students does not change or diminish our commitment to upholding clear PPS policies and guidelines that prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or expression.
At a ceremony on February 10 at Wilson High School in SW Portland, nine PPS schools were recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for achieving ENERGY STAR certification. To receive this certification, a building must perform in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. ENERGY STAR schools use an average of 35% less energy, and also release 35% less carbon dioxide.
The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at, www.pps.net/dbrac.
