    • A step forward for middle schools

      Guadalupe Guerrero, PPS superintendent

      Dear PPS Community,

      Tonight, the Portland Public Schools Board of Directors took a forward-looking vote to open two middle schools in Northeast Portland. This makes a big statement about our commitment to providing equitable education and services to historically underserved communities.

      The board approved a resolution calling on the District to open Roseway Heights and Harriet Tubman as a middle schools. To me, this is a landmark decision that carries a promise of not only increasing student achievement and outcomes, but also improving how we educate our middle grade students throughout the District. I applaud the Board for moving forward on what has been a long and challenging effort.
