Thanks to all of you who have already responded to our latest Successful Schools Family Survey. If you have not yet participated, please do. The survey will only take 15-20 minutes of your time. Each school has a goal of at least 50% of the families participating. Ockley is being measured on this goal and will receive incentives from the district if we meet this goal. We are only at 29% participation as of this week.
We really want to know more about your family’s experience at our school, and surveys such as this are a valuable way to help us align our vision with your interests and needs.
Take the survey today! You can complete the survey from a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Select the school your child attends. If you have children at more than one PPS school, please complete one survey for each school your children attend. If you need help taking the survey, please contact your school secretary.
Thank you so much!
Greetings Ockley Green Families,
Please be advised that students will be receiving their initial second semester schedules on 1/23/19. Most students will see very few changes and most changes that do occur will be shifts to elective classes. These changes are most often created by our master scheduling software as it works to honor students’ preferences with regard to the variety of diverse elective opportunities our school offers. In some instances, students’ schedules might also change to meet requirements for their enrollment in health and/or movement classes. Some scheduling adjustments have additionally been made based on new opportunities for reading support classes. Similarly, our math offerings have also been improved in order to lower class sizes and provide greater opportunities for math support.
As has been done previously, schedule change request forms will be available shortly after the start of the semester. Due to limitations with our district’s Synergy scheduling software we are unable to process schedule change request forms until after the semester starts. An announcement will be be made in students’ advisory classes as soon as the forms are able to be provided. Schedule change request forms will be placed outside of the Student Support Team office (room 228). These forms will be processed as quickly as possible by our school counseling staff (Jillian Stone and Brian Meyer). We will work to honor all change requests as best as possible.
For those using StudentVue or ParentVue, please be advised that due to certain technical limitations with our district’s Synergy scheduling software, students viewing their second semester schedules through those portals may see some duplicate courses, unexpected additional periods, or similar errors. Our PPS IT team has been made aware of these issues and we are working with them to resolve them. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

The Portland Public Schools Board of Education approved a significant revision to the district policy on student field trips and out-of-town travel, and passed a resolution to offer comment on proposed construction work on Interstate 5 that would affect Harriet Tubman Middle School.
Dear PPS Families,
With hopes that inclement winter weather is done for this school year, we wanted to touch base with you regarding making up snow days. We thought it was important to share an update with you before Spring Break.
