    Dear PPS community,

    Six months ago, the Board of Directors and the Portland community entrusted in me the privilege and responsibility to help build and transform a public school system that guarantees equitable access, opportunity, and outcomes for all of our students. With your support and leadership, we are on a forward mission to build a system that is equity-focused and student-centered. Our challenge is to ensure that every student in our district receives an outstanding educational experience, one that prepares them to work, live and thrive in our incredible city.

  • Message on April 20 student walkouts

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Community,

    Please know that in collaboration with school administrators, district leadership actively monitored the hundreds of mostly middle and high school students who walked out of our schools today as part of a national demonstration against violence in schools. I am pleased to say that, by all reports, this was a peaceful and respectful event with no serious incidents. While these actions were not district-sponsored activity, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who helped keep students safe, starting with the students themselves who remained organized, calm and intentional throughout. Others who helped include Portland police, PPS security, and other PPS staff. Thank you all.

  • EcoChallenge gives students a way to dive into Earth Day

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Earth Day is Sunday, April 22. What can you do to take action? Well, it all starts with looking at your habits. They say that it takes about two weeks to change a habit, so by looking at what we do on a day-to-day basis, we can find many different ways to be more sustainable that don’t take much effort. For instance, if you leave the water on while brushing your teeth, try turning it off. When you do this, you save about 5 gallons of water!
