Updating your browser

We are working toward complying with the World Wide Web Consortium standards and guidelines which will make Web sites accessable to the visually-impaired. Versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer earlier than 4.0 do not support these standards, so Web sites (including ours) will display oddly and possibly function poorly on these old browsers.

To use our site, we strongly recommend that you use a version 4.x or 5.x browser. If you do not already have one, we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you download the latest versions of Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator by using the links below.

Download the latest version of Internet Explorer for Windows.
Download the latest version of Internet Explorer for Macintosh
Download the latest version of Netscape Communicator (includes Navigator).

These browsers may take a little while to download, but the added functionality makes it worth the wait. Once you have completed downloading and installing a new Web browser, http://www.pps.k12.or.us/splash.html will take you to the Portland Public Schools' Welcome page. Meanwhile, http://www.pps.k12.or.us/main.shtml will take you to the Portland Public Schools' home page (English version), containing links to the major categories of information on our site.
