    Dear PPS Families,

    We want to update you on our progress on the Enrollment and Program Balancing project we have undertaken. As we have previously announced, our initial work is focused on schools in Southeast Portland in advance of the reopening of Kellogg Middle School.

  • Important Update Regarding MAP Assessments

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский
    Dear PPS Families,
    Whether in more typical circumstances or during our current Comprehensive Distance Learning mode, it’s important for our educators to have the best possible understanding of their students’ learning needs (this is one of the reasons we began the school year with our soft start, which prioritized student-teacher connections). One of the tools PPS uses to help teachers with that understanding is the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment. 
  • Clarifying Expectations for Middle School Instruction

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Middle School Families,

    We apologize for the confusion many students and families are feeling with regard to middle school schedules and expectations for distance learning instruction. We have worked with educators and administrators throughout this week to come to a more clear understanding related to middle school learning experience, and want to make sure you know what to expect as well.

  • MAP Assessments for PPS Students: September 28-October 23

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Parents and Guardians,

    As we welcome students back to the new school year, an important step for teachers is to understand your student’s most essential learning needs. To collect this valuable information, students will take Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments. The MAP assessment is a low stakes test – this means that the results are not used for grading students or for school accountability purposes.
