    Dear PPS Community,

    The Portland Public Schools Board of Education is hosting its annual budget town hall virtually, so that community members can be heard, even in the midst of social distancing made necessary by COVID-19. 

    You can follow next Monday’s budget town hall via the PPS YouTube channel. Here are the details:

    If you are interested in providing public testimony during the budget town hall, please see instructions below.

    Monday evening’s program will include a short presentation of the 2020-21 PPS proposed budget, and a discussion of how next year’s budget is affected by state revenue shortfalls, where we are investing next year, and how we are holding true to our district Vision and strategic priorities.
