  • Mission: We tell the story of Portland Public Schools. We serve as the primary line of communication to our students, families, staff and communities. We take the lead on strategic and emergency communications, handle news media requests, and provide support to schools and the central office.

    Guided by the district’s commitment to equity, we translate our efforts into five languages. Our work reflects the scope of the most diverse and largest school district in Oregon.
