"The research on configuration is clear that no one model is the ultimate best. The question is whether any one grade configuration accomplishes several desired ends - preserving strong neighborhood schools while offering solid academic achievement, greater parental involvement, etc. Portland has the chance to learn the lessons from both the K-8 and middle school research and design schools that give us the best of both." ˜ Superintendent Vicki L.
