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.
Julia Brim-Edwards elected chair; Julie Esparza Brown, Rita Moore are co-vice chairs
Two newly elected members and one current member of the Portland Public School Board will assume leadership roles following a special July 7 board meeting.
