  • An Update Regarding Limited In-Person Opportunities

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    We are now several weeks into Comprehensive Distance Learning, and simultaneously working on the next phases of a gradual re-opening of schools. PPS remains focused on published health metrics from the county and state and our medical experts. We also continue to observe Oregon Department of Education guidelines as we contemplate introducing limited in-person opportunities. While we are anxious to have all of our students back on campus, we will proceed in a measured and prudent manner that prioritizes the health and safety of our students and employees.

One of the tools PPS uses to help teachers with that understanding is the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment.
