August 8, 2017:
We understand there are questions about the schedule for ACCESS Academy during the upcoming school year. Here’s where things stand: Our 6-8 grade student day is confirmed as 8:45 a.m.- 3:15 p.m. The District is working with the teacher's union, PAT, on a contract exception before we can finalize our 1-5 grade student day. We hope to have a decision soon, and will notify you immediately. We understand the need for families to be able to plan and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
All students who were receiving free or reduced-price meal benefits at the end of last year must complete a NEW meal application for the 2017-18 school year. Students who have not submitted a new application will be required to pay full price starting Thursday, October 12th.
Applications are available at your school office, cafeteria and online at www.pps.net/nutrition.
If your child attends a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school, you do NOT need to submit a free or reduced-price meal application. All students at CEP schools do not pay for school meals. The CEP schools are: Alliance @ Meek, Boise Eliot/Humboldt, Cesar Chavez, George MS, Harrison Park, King, Lent, Pioneer @ Youngson, Rigler, Rosa Parks, Scott, Sitton and Woodmere.
The Portland School Board on Friday unanimously voted to hire Guadalupe Guerrero to lead Portland Public Schools as its next superintendent.
Guerrero, now a deputy superintendent in San Francisco Unified School District, has dedicated himself to ensuring that all students – especially those traditionally underserved – have access to a well-rounded education that sparks learning and success in school.
