Announcing Permanent Principal at Rosa Parks, Tina Turner
Dear Rosa Parks Community,
I am pleased to announce that Tina Turner, who has been serving as interim principal at Rosa Parks Elementary School this school year, has been elevated to the permanent principal.
In her time at Rosa Parks, Principal Turner has strived to build relationships with families, staff, school volunteers and outside agencies. She is dedicated to social-emotional learning and racial equity and social justice practices, and has steadfastly monitored and evaluated educational programs to maintain high-quality performance objectives and standards.
Principal Turner is a Portlander through and through, having grown up in North and Northeast Portland, attended PPS schools and graduated in 1993 from Grant High School.
She got into education through the Portland Teachers Program, which aims to increase the number of educators of color in the Portland area. She taught for 10 years in PPS and the David Douglas School District before moving into administration.
We’re proud to give Rosa Parks Elementary School a leader who reflects the school’s community. Please join me in congratulating Principal Turner.
Dr. Cheryl Proctor
Deputy Superintendent, Instruction & School Communities
Dear PPS Community:
We are pleased that COVID-19 cases are declining in Oregon; however, we must remain vigilant as the virus is still widespread throughout the state. As PPS prepares for summer programming, we want to remind you of ways to protect your students and your family:
Dear PPS families,
Portland Public Schools is excited to provide free summer enrichment and extended learning. These opportunities are for students of all ages and include academic support, credit completion for high school students, enrichment activities, and culturally specific learning experiences. These programs are offered by our community partners and this catalog lists programs by each community partner. We also posted these opportunities on this website, where you can search listings by school and subject.

Dear PPS Community,
Earlier this year, the PPS School Board unanimously adopted one of the most aggressive school district climate crisis response policies in the nation.
We are now looking for PPS students and members of our community to join the district’s efforts to cut greenhouse gas emission in half by 2030 and make other meaningful progress on important sustainability initiatives.
