Enrollment/Registration - New Students who have not enrolled yet with PPS and/or Lincoln:
Counselors will be available to meet individually with students and families to schedule classes August 18th and 22nd. To schedule an appointment with a counselor, please contact our registrar, Jennifer Herbst, beginning August 11th, at email@example.com or 503-916-5200 ext. 75411. In the meantime, families can prepare for these meetings by completing the following:
Step 1: Complete PPS/Lincoln HS enrollment/registration paperwork, reading instructions carefully, and enroll in person at Lincoln High School. The school office is open during the summer. If you wish to meet with a counselor, they will return to the Counseling Center on August 17th. Once enrolled, your child will receive a student I.D. number which is required to register for classes.
Step 2: Please review our 2017-18 Course Guide and complete a Forecasting Sheet. Please note: For students grades 10-12, please plan to bring with you a current transcript from your previous high school to assist your counselor with appropriate course placement to meet graduation requirements. You will need to bring both the completed Forecasting Sheet and prior school transcript to register for classes.
Class Schedules - For current students 2017-18:
Counselors will be out of the office beginning June 17th and will return on August 17th. Students will receive a hard copy of their final schedule (including class periods, teacher names, and room numbers) on the first day of school (Wednesday, August 30th). Please be reminded, students will not be allowed to make any schedule changes. The only exceptions will be: schedule does not meet graduation requirements, course completion over the summer, in the wrong course level, incomplete schedule, or revision due to off-campus learning. If you need to meet with a counselor for any other reason, please contact them beginning August 17th.

With Warm Regards,
Dear PPS staff and families,
The search and recruitment for our new superintendent is well underway.
The community, board and search firm recommended more than 40 educational leaders for consideration. The search firm and the Board reviewed the prospects and candidates and the Board selected a diverse group with deep educational experience to interview. They included individuals from within and outside Oregon, current superintendents as well as senior education leaders from large districts.
From a remote town in Jordan to leading Oregon’s biggest school district
At the age of 5, Yousef Awwad joined his older brothers in the streets of Ghweria, Jordan, a small city outside Zarqa, to sell sesame candies and balloons to keep food on his family’s table.
Yousef’s dad was serving in the Jordan military and was stationed in an area of the desert so remote that he wasn’t able to send money home while he was deployed.
Today, Yousef is serving as the new interim superintendent of the largest school district in Oregon. How did a boy living in poverty in a remote town in Jordan wind up here?
