The goal is for everyone at Portland Public Schools to regularly apply the updated RESJ Lens. All employees will continue to practice utilizing the critical thinking and evaluation skills developed while using the lens as part of PPS’s commitment to racial equity and social justice. We believe this practice will continue to inform our organizational development and strengthen our collective impact. The result of creating an organizational culture where the RESJ lens is regularly utilized and the results are analyzed will focus everyone on achieving measurable outcomes addressing our internal barriers and practices.
Portland Public Schools recognizes the diversity and worth of all individuals and groups and their roles in society. It is the policy of the Portland Public Schools Board of Education that there will be no discrimination or harassment of individuals or groups on the grounds of age, color, creed, disability, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation in any educational programs, activities or employment.
