Wilson High School took first place and Cleveland High School landed second place in the 2013 5A OSAA State Choir Championships May 11 at George Fox University in Newberg - a first for Wilson and a first for two PPS high schools earning top finishes in one year.
Superintendent Carole Smith has outlined a proposed agreement that would allow PPS to put at least a half-time art teacher in every school serving elementary students for the 2013-14 school year, pending resolution of current legal challenges to the City arts tax.
Superintendent Carole Smith announced today that the school district is lifting the current limitation on the number of classes that high school students can take. As a result of the 58 additional teaching positions reallocated to high schools for next year, PPS high schools will make 8 credit-bearing classes available to high school students in the 2013-14 school year.
