Register for Kindergarten Online!
If you have a child who will be 5 years old by September 1, please register for kindergarten! To register, go to pps.net/kinderenroll. The process takes 20-30 minutes and school staff will follow up with you later in the summer. With schools closed, online registration is the easiest option, but paper options will be available soon. You don’t need to register if your child attends a PPS Head Start or Pre-Kindergarten program.
Here is a video to help with guidance.

Following weeks of public engagement, Portland Public Schools Board of Education voted 7-0 on Tuesday to refer a proposed 2020 School Bond Renewal to voters. If approved by voters, the 2020 School Bond Renewal would maintain the current tax rate and continue investments in Portland schools, including funding for critical educational, health and safety, and school modernization priorities.
As the 2019-20 school year wound down and turned into summer, Portland Public Schools continues to keep its meal distribution running to help feed our families. For families who are unable to get to the 14 school meal sites, Amazon stepped up.
At the July 14 Board of Education meeting, Portland Public Schools released a plan that lays out a procedure for renaming its buildings and other spaces. The move to reexamine district names comes in response to the continuing unrest across the country, including in Portland, in reaction to the systematic racism brought into public focus this summer.
