  • Principal Selection Meeting

    The Irvington community communicates, collaborates, and connects to reach each

    student's potential. Everyone teaches, everyone learns, everyone cares.

    Irvington Vision Statement

    Dear Irvington Staff and Community,

    Irvington will have a new principal next year. We want to invite staff, parents, and students to attend a Community Meeting to understand the process for selection of next year’s principal and to get your ideas and input; they are important!

    Community Meeting for Selection of Next Year’s Principal

    Date: Monday, June 19th       
    Time: 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.             
    Location: Irvington School Library

    Child care will be provided.

    The community meeting is one of the first steps taken in our principal hiring process.  John Blanck, from Human Resources, and Karl Logan, your Senior Director, will come to your school and meet with teachers and parents together.  The purpose of the meeting is to hear what you think is special about your school. We want to know about your programs, demographics, parent involvement, special projects, etc., and about the type of person you would like to have as your permanent Principal.  This information helps us select candidates that have qualifications that support those elements.

    At the meeting we will also take time to explain the full hiring process.  We will explain two main possibilities: a) how the Community Meeting information may be used with the Senior Director to place a current Principal because of a great match between the school and that Principal, or b) if a match is not selected by the Senior Directors, applicants chosen will go through a rigorous process to be selected for interviews.

    If you cannot attend that evening, I will have other ways to provide information (on-line and paper surveys
    Link to Community Input Survey, emails, etc.)  If you have questions, please feel free to contact me – Ann Marie Wentworth – - 503-916-3818.
    Estimados miembros del personal y la comunidad de Irvington,

    El próximo año tendremos un nuevo director/a Irvington. Deseamos invitar al personal de la escuela,  a los padres y a los estudiantes a asistir a una junta de la comunidad para que puedan comprender el proceso de selección del director/a para el próximo año y nosotros conocer las ideas y aportaciones de todos ustedes, que ¡Son importantes!

    Junta de la Comunidad para la Selección del Director/a para el próximo año

     Fecha:  Lunes 19 de junio        
    Hora:       6:30 p.m. a 8:00 p.m.     
    Lugar:       Irvington  Library

    La junta de la comunidad es uno de los primeros pasos del proceso de emplear un nuevo director/a.
    John Blanck, del Departamento de Recursos Humanos y Karl Logan, Director Ejecutivo, vendrán a nuestra escuela a reunirse con los padres y maestros. El propósito de esta junta es escuchar sus opiniones acerca de las características especiales de su escuela.

    Deseamos conocer acerca de los programas que tiene la escuela, la composición demográfica, la participación de los padres, los proyectos especiales, etc.; y  además acerca del tipo de persona que les gustaría tener como director/a permanente. Esta información nos ayudará a seleccionar a los candidatos cuyas calificaciones apoyen estos aspectos.

    En la reunión también tendremos tiempo para explicar el proceso de contratación total. Explicaremos dos posibilidades importantes: a) cómo la información de la reunión de la Comunidad se puede utilizar con los administradores regionales para elegir a un Director(a) actual, debido a una afinidad entre la escuela y el director, o b) Si un candidato no es elegido por los administradores regionales, los candidatos seleccionados pasarán por un proceso riguroso para ser seleccionados para las entrevistas.

    Si usted no puede asistir esa noche, tendrá otras maneras para proveer información (encuestas en línea y papel, correos electrónicos, etc.)     Si usted tiene preguntas, por favor no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo – Ann Marie Wentworth – - 503-916-3818

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS community,

    Six months ago, the Board of Directors and the Portland community entrusted in me the privilege and responsibility to help build and transform a public school system that guarantees equitable access, opportunity, and outcomes for all of our students. With your support and leadership, we are on a forward mission to build a system that is equity-focused and student-centered. Our challenge is to ensure that every student in our district receives an outstanding educational experience, one that prepares them to work, live and thrive in our incredible city. 

  • Sports update: Multiple PIL players earn All-State basketball honors

    The Portland Interscholastic League’s strong run in the state basketball tournaments was reflected in the Class 6A All-State teams. Three PIL boys and two girls were chosen to the first team in a ballot of the state’s coaches, as compiled by The Oregonian/OregonLive.

  • Message on April 20 student walkouts

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Community,

    Please know that in collaboration with school administrators, district leadership actively monitored the hundreds of mostly middle and high school students who walked out of our schools today as part of a national demonstration against violence in schools. I am pleased to say that, by all reports, this was a peaceful and respectful event with no serious incidents. While these actions were not district-sponsored activity, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who helped keep students safe, starting with the students themselves who remained organized, calm and intentional throughout. Others who helped include Portland police, PPS security, and other PPS staff. Thank you all.
