  • Help Create An Equitable Vision for School Enrollment and Program Balancing in SE Portland

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    In keeping with the District's commitment to racial equity and social justice (RESJ), PPS is actively seeking to develop a deep understanding of the experiences, thoughts, and concerns of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) students and families that may be impacted by this important decision. If you are a current or incoming BIPOC student or parent at Lane, Harrison Park, or a neighboring school, please join us for a dialogue session to share how PPS schools can meet students' social emotional needs and educational aspirations. Please click the flyer below to learn more.

  • Overview

    Portland Public Schools has launched a multi-year process to develop a plan to balance student enrollment and programs across our district, which serves nearly 50,000 students in 81 schools. Enrollment and Program Balancing uses both a data-driven analysis process and community input to address needs such as equity and inclusion, transportation, facilities constraints, and much more.

  • Read FLO Analytics' Baseline Assessment

    The PPS Enrollment and Program Balancing Advisory Committee has been working with FLO Analytics to guide our enrollment and program balancing process. As part of the work, we asked FLO to conduct a baseline assessment of Portland Public Schools’ enrollment, programs, facilities, and student demographics. This information is the baseline data required to develop a district-wide framework to guide both short and long-term decision making, as it relates to enrollment and program balancing.
