Following weeks of public engagement, Portland Public Schools Board of Education voted 7-0 on Tuesday to refer a proposed 2020 School Bond Renewal to voters. If approved by voters, the 2020 School Bond Renewal would maintain the current tax rate and continue investments in Portland schools, including funding for critical educational, health and safety, and school modernization priorities.

At the July 14 Board of Education meeting, Portland Public Schools released a plan that lays out a procedure for renaming its buildings and other spaces. The move to reexamine district names comes in response to the continuing unrest across the country, including in Portland, in reaction to the systematic racism brought into public focus this summer.
