Portland Public Schools 2025 - Take the survey!

April 1-May 8: Enrollment at PPS is expected to grow by thousands in the next decade. Take the 17-question PPS2025 survey to help shape change as we grow: in all supported languages online at Oregon's Kitchen Table or go the PPS2025 webpage to download a PDF and view frequently asked questions (FAQs).

Important Dates and Times for 2014-15

Transfer to a PPS neighborhood school outside the neighborhood in which you live is through a petition request. Access to some focus option grade levels is also done through petition.

What: In a petition, families explain why their child needs to transfer. PPS evaluates all reasons and also takes into consideration whether there is space available at the requested school.

When: Petition requests may be submitted at any time. But for the best chance of placement, PPS encourages families to submit petitions by June for the next school year.

How: Petition forms are available at the District Office (Enrollment & Transfer Dept).

More information about the petitions:

Important Reminders


The PPS School Improvement Bond work was completed in a number of areas throughout the main building, annex and portables this summer. This included seismic strengthening and improved accessibility to bathrooms and the entrance to our portables. In addition, we are excited to announce that two science labs have been built. The Installation of an elevator is still under construction. This will continue for several more months and we are working closely with contractors and district staff to develop plans, so that there will be minimal impact on instruction and access to the building. Ongoing updates will be posted here and noted in our school newsletter.



We are always in need of school volunteers. To become a volunteer you must fill out a background check application. All Background check applications are done online. Please follow the link below to the application.
