School Buildings: Conditions and Characteristics
PPS manages a significant portfolio of Portland’s public buildings and is responsible for the second largest acreage of property in the city, just after Portland Parks and Recreation. Faced with aging schools that were built to address the educational needs of the past century, our community has important decisions to make:
- What building improvements are needed to support 21st century teaching and learning and better serve our community?
- What renovations will ensure safe, warm and dry schools?
- What improvements can we make to conserve resources and save money?
- What will this cost and how do we pay for the necessary improvements?
