Help a classroom in support of Portland Public Schools
In fall 2018, the Board of Education and the Superintendent of PPS launched a community-wide process to develop a long-term Vision for public education in Portland. This Vision, created after dozens of community meetings involving hundreds of stakeholders, describes our goals for the graduating class of 2030, and the educational experience that will increasingly be the reality for each of our graduates from 2019 onward.

The Vision for Portland Public Schools focuses on what we want to be true for our graduates. The Vision is a journey of ongoing creativity, learning, and improvement, and its boldness can speed progress by inspiring action and collaboration.

The Vision comprises four main areas: a Graduate Portrait; a set of Educator Essentials; a set of Educational System Shifts; and a set of Core Values. The Graduate Portrait focuses on student outcomes, including what they will know, who they will be, and what they will be able to do by the time they graduate. If we want certain things to be true for PPS graduates, the adults who support them—particularly the educators—will also need to develop and model a certain set of knowledge, skills, mindsets, and dispositions. And if we want graduates to attain the portrait attributes—and educators to be supported in developing and emphasizing these attributes—the entire school district needs to shift to ensure that this happens.

Support PPS in executing on our community’s shared vision!
