Dear Rosa Parks Students and Families,Thank you all for a great “soft” start to our school year. I have seen many of you meeting withyour teachers and commented on some of the incredible student work in your See-Sawclassrooms. I am very grateful for your engagement and flexibility as we navigate the start ofwhat I am sure will be a school year filled with great opportunities for nurturing a growthmindset.
In order to create some consistency for families and students we have created a studentschedule with consistent times for you to know when your child will be participating in “alltogether” (synchronous) online instruction and when they will participate in “on your own”(asynchronous) online activities. The schedule provided below will begin on Monday,September 14th, 2020. I appreciate all your partnership in this new distance learning model.
Every day Monday - Friday your child’s teacher will begin “all together learning”, live virtualinstruction at 10:00am. This will involve a lesson for the day and small group instruction.Depending on the day students will work on either Math or Language Arts integrated with SocialStudies. This instruction will last until 12:15pm when students will have lunch and a recessbreak. All together instruction will pick back up at 1:00pm and run until 2:00pm. These blocks oftime are colored in green on our student schedule.
Students will also have opportunities to participate in “on your own” learning without the directinstruction of a teacher. These may involve a variety of learning applications focused ondifferent content areas. These blocks of time are colored in purple on our student schedule.
Specials like P.E., Music and some SEL meetings (social emotional learning) will be delivered ina hybrid model meaning that some classes will be all together and some will be recorded andposted in See-Saw for students to access when they are able. These blocks of time are coloredin teal on our student schedule.We have worked very hard and will continue to work hard to ensure we are doing everything wecan to support your child’s learning while we remain in distance learning. Please reach out toyour child’s teacher or the front office if you have questions or we can help in any way. Thankyou all for your flexibility and partnership as we embark on a new and very different school year.

Welcome to our Rosa Parks Elementary School Website! Rosa Parks Elementary K-5 School is nestled in the New Columbia neighborhood of North Portland, Oregon. Our administration, teachers, staff, and volunteers work together to achieve our goal, "to place and keep children first in all we do." We have a diverse community with over 20 different countries represented, which is closely knit together into a larger community that works hard to help our students succeed. At Rosa Parks, "failure is not an option!"
Note: The following was presented May 11 by the Community Budget Review Committee. We are thankful for the hard work and commitment shared by these volunteers.
Background and Purpose of the Community Budget Review Committee (CBRC)
The Community Budget Review Committee (CBRC) reviews, evaluates and makes recommendations to the Portland Public School Board of Education (Board) regarding the Superintendent's Proposed Budget and any other budgetary issues the CBRC or the Board identify. The CBRC also monitors and advises the Board on the allocation and expenditure of Local Option Levy funds, which will be completed under separate cover.
Dear PPS Community,
Portland Public Schools is in the process of developing and finalizing our 2021-22 budget for approval by the Board of Education, and we want to hear from you. Please join us for the 2021-22 Budget Focus Groups. Both opportunities are available to PPS students.
Dear PPS High School Families,
This is a reminder that COVID-19 vaccinations are available again this Wednesday, May 12 at the Oregon Convention Center for students 16 and older and their family members.
As Teacher and School Administrator Appreciation Week comes to a close here at Portland Public Schools, I want to share an additional personal note of gratitude to all our hard-working and dedicated professional educators and school leaders. While your commitment to our students is always evident, this past year with all of its challenges was truly unlike any other in our careers. The impact of this pandemic, economic crisis, and racial uprising, has required incredible flexibility, adaptation, and perseverance on your part.
