Saying no to a bully and to bullying begins with reporting! Students are free to report bullying anonymously by using this online form. Every report will be reviewed by Mr. Crotchett and Mr. Crabtree. In many case students will be talked with to get more information or to simply share the report.
Students who are experiencing bullying that will not stop need to be encouraged to reach out to their trusted adults for help. Parents, teachers, counselors, and your principals are here to help. Ask for time to talk with any of us or complete the anonymous report and tell us you want to meet in the description.
Dear PPS staff and families,
The search and recruitment for our new superintendent is well underway.
The community, board and search firm recommended more than 40 educational leaders for consideration. The search firm and the Board reviewed the prospects and candidates and the Board selected a diverse group with deep educational experience to interview. They included individuals from within and outside Oregon, current superintendents as well as senior education leaders from large districts.
From a remote town in Jordan to leading Oregon’s biggest school district
At the age of 5, Yousef Awwad joined his older brothers in the streets of Ghweria, Jordan, a small city outside Zarqa, to sell sesame candies and balloons to keep food on his family’s table.
Yousef’s dad was serving in the Jordan military and was stationed in an area of the desert so remote that he wasn’t able to send money home while he was deployed.
Today, Yousef is serving as the new interim superintendent of the largest school district in Oregon. How did a boy living in poverty in a remote town in Jordan wind up here?
Julia Brim-Edwards elected chair; Julie Esparza Brown, Rita Moore are co-vice chairs
Two newly elected members and one current member of the Portland Public School Board will assume leadership roles following a special July 7 board meeting.
