The 8-year school building improvement bond that Portland voters approved in November 2012 will replace leaking and deteriorated roofs at as many as 22 schools. In addition, identified roof level seismic deficiencies will be included in this work. Roof replacements increase the longevity of the building while improving energy efficiency, indoor air quality and occupant comfort, and reducing the costs to operate and maintain schools in the long run.
In 2009, PPS replaced leaking roofs at 9 schools with new roofs that featured thin film solar due to partnerships and the incentives available at that time.

- Tear off and new roof system installation
