• LGBTQ2SIA+ Supports

    LGBTQ2SIA+ students, families, staff, and community partners are vital members of the Portland Public Schools community. Our commitment to this community continues to expand as we grow in our understanding of the unique needs and challenges facing the LGBTQ2SIA+ community. This webpage is just a starting point for finding information regarding rights, services available within PPS and the Portland metro area, and basic educational resources. Anyone - students, families, PPS staff - can reach out to the Program Manager if they have questions about PPS practices or would like to thought partner around a student need, building need, or department need.

    If you have feedback/notice a broken link, please fill out this form. Thanks for helping us keep resources current!

  • TransLASH- National Hispanic Heritage Month/ Centring Tran and TGNC Latinx/Latine Voices

    National Hispanic Heritage Month can elicit the entire spectrum of human emotions for our Latinx/Latine trans and TGNC siblings—and we’re holding space for that complexity! Whether you refer to September as Latinx Heritage Month or National Hispanic Heritage Month, we hope you find this trans-affirming guide useful as you explore what Hispanic means.
