Dear Atkinson Community:
It is with mixed emotions that I am writing to inform you of my transition to the role of principal of Roseway Heights Middle School. It has been an honor to serve the students, families, and educators of Atkinson.
The process for selecting a new principal will begin immediately. The first step will be a community meeting on Monday, Aug. 12 from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Atkinson library. Dr. Corey Seymour, the Area Senior Director for Atkinson, will facilitate the meeting. You are encouraged to share the desired characteristics for the next principal, and Dr. Seymour will also discuss interview committee opportunities and offer details of the hiring protocol and process.
The information from the input session will be used throughout the process and will be shared with the selected candidate to give that person a sense of the community’s priorities and values.
If you are not able to attend the meeting on Monday, you can share your input through this survey. Furthermore, if you would like to be considered for a spot on the principal selection committee, please fill out this nomination form to apply. If you have any difficulty accessing the survey or nomination form, or if you any questions, please reach out to Debbie Mabe at email@example.com.

Every year, one group of students in Portland Public Schools starts the new school year with the finish line of their K-12 education in sight. And as classes begin on Aug. 28 for the the 2019-20 school year, the end is closer than ever for the students who will start their senior years.
The Portland Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously to extend PPS Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero's current contract by another two years during its Tuesday, June 25 meeting. Since he will be entering the third year of his original contract, the Board has committed to a total of five years through June 2022 with Guerrero at the helm. The approval came after board members offered a comprehensively positive review of his performance.
A public hearing will be held by the Tax Supervising and Conservation Commission on the budget approved by the Budget Committee for Portland Public School District 1J, Multnomah County, Oregon for the fiscal year July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. The hearing will be held in the Board Auditorium at the Blanchard Education Service Center (BESC), 501 North Dixon Street, Portland, Oregon, on the 25th day of June at 3 p.m.
