Public Charter Schools

Charter schools are public schools that are intended to provide innovative programs with specific educational philosophies and/or delivery models that offer additional options for students and families within the public school system.  Charter schools enter into a contract with Portland Public Schools for sponsorship and they maintain a high level of autonomy in exchange for increased accountability.

The Board of Education of Portland Public Schools believes that providing students and families a variety of education choices representing a range of high quality instructional methodologies is an important element in the district's goals and assists the district in meeting the objectives of its Strategic Plan to provide flexibility for programs that facilitate students achieving their very best academic and personal potential.

To LEP Charter School students and families:

As you have heard, LEP will be closing its doors at the end of the school year. LEP staff and board remain committed to helping all students finish the year at LEP, and working with PPS to help transition students to new schools for next year.

Below is guidance on steps LEP students and families can take to find another school or program for next school year.    

LEP students who live outside of PPS boundaries:

If you live within another school district’s boundaries, such as David Douglas, Centennial, Park Rose, Gresham-Barlow, or North Clackamas, you can contact your local high school for information on how to register for that school. 

You can apply for an inter-district transfer at Portland Public Schools.  May 8th is the deadline for submitting an application for this process.

CONTACT: PPS Enrollment & Transfer office 503-916-3205

LEP seniors:

Connect with a guidance counselor at LEP High about requirements to finish a diploma or discuss options for programming to assist the student in finishing their schooling.
