Kaiser Permanente joins Concordia, PPS Faubion School, and Trillium Family Services in the 3 to PhD model to create safer, healthier, educated ...
The school year was over, but more than 500 K-5 teachers were hard at work preparing for the 2018-19 academic year at the PPS Summer Institute at Roosevelt High School. The two-day training gave teachers the opportunity to dig into the new language arts curriculum, and hear from teachers who are already using it. The teachers also learned how the curriculum aligns with state standards and the district’s newly adopted scope and sequence — an academic term for what will be taught and in what order.
Dear PPS Families,
As the 2017-18 school year comes to a close, I would like to appreciate our students, teachers, support staff, and school leaders for all their hard work. They have all earned a well-deserved summer break. This past week, more than four thousand students walked across the stage at the various high school graduation ceremonies and received their diplomas. Congratulations to our seniors on reaching this important milestone. We wish you much success in your next endeavors.
Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, said a new public and private partnership between Concordia University and Faubion Elementary is a shining example of making powerful changes in education that can lift an entire community.
Schools of the Future: Design is Destiny!
Engage with the architect, principal, university faculty, and curriculum designers in a talk and tour to find out how design is destiny for 800+ students and their families in NE Portland. The first of its kind in the nation, 3 to PhD was developed as a new public-private collaboration to create safer, healthier, more educated communities, where all young people could "pursue their highest dreams" (PhD). DWP participants can experience a day in the life inside Portland's first newly constructed school in two decades, which opened in fall 2017, and includes Faubion PK-8, Concordia University's College of Education, an early childhood center, the 3 to PhD Kaiser Permanente Wellness Center, STEAM/maker spaces, and a food club.
