All students who were receiving free or reduced-price meal benefits at the end of last year must complete a NEW meal application for the 2017-18 school year. Students who have not submitted a new application will be required to pay full price starting Thursday, October 12th.
Applications are available at your school office, cafeteria and online at www.pps.net/nutrition.
If your child attends a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school, you do NOT need to submit a free or reduced-price meal application. All students at CEP schools do not pay for school meals. The CEP schools are: Alliance @ Meek, Boise Eliot/Humboldt, Cesar Chavez, George MS, Harrison Park, King, Lent, Pioneer @ Youngson, Rigler, Rosa Parks, Scott, Sitton and Woodmere.
The Portland School Board on Friday unanimously voted to hire Guadalupe Guerrero to lead Portland Public Schools as its next superintendent.
Guerrero, now a deputy superintendent in San Francisco Unified School District, has dedicated himself to ensuring that all students – especially those traditionally underserved – have access to a well-rounded education that sparks learning and success in school.
Three new members joined the PPS Board after the May 16 election, bringing a wealth of experience, activism and passion to the job. Julia Brim-Edwards, Scott Bailey and Rita Moore were inaugurated last month and will serve the PPS community for at least the next four years. Brim-Edwards was elected chair. Moore was elected co-vice chair along with Julie Esparza Brown.
Dear PPS families and staff,
Allow me to introduce myself – I am the new interim superintendent for PPS as of July 1, and I look forward to working with you and your students as we prepare for a new school year. I am excited about the direction the district is heading. We have a wealth of talented teachers, principals and support staff, we have new buildings coming on line and a renewed sense of optimism about our future.
