On June 17 the Portland School Board formally adopted a $487 million budget for the 2013-14 school year, by a vote of 6-0. The board had previously approved the budget in May. The budget adds teachers district-wide, prioritizes equity in allocating staff to schools, and allows high school students to take full course loads.
