Apply for the New Boundaries Committee!

Families, students, staff and members of the community are invited to apply for the district’s newly created Community Advisory Committee on Attendance Boundaries for PreK-8 Schools.

The new committee will be evaluating whether, and how, the district should redraw the enrollment boundaries for some or all of its elementary and middle schools to achieve more equitable enrollment and demographic balance. Also, the committee will consider whether changes should be made to the district’s current middle school model to better reflect current and future enrollment and better promote equity and achievement.

The Board of Public Education approved a resolution establishing the committee at its June 18 meeting.

The Board believes that deep community participation and input is needed to achieve the best outcomes and solutions from this review, and encourages community members to apply. The Advisory Committee will consist of 12-14 members, including:

  •  two members of the Board to be nominated by the Chair
  •  two staff representatives to be recommended by teachers’ and support staff unions
  •  two current students or recent alumni 
  •  two building leaders to be recommended by principal’s union
  •  two parents/caretakers of current students
  •  Two to four additional community members

The deadline to apply is July 31. The Board is seeking applicants who represent the diversity of backgrounds and experiences representative of the Portland Public Schools. After a review of the applicants by the Board’s Appointments Committee, the Board will appoint members of the committee in August, in time for them to begin their work at the start of 2024-2025 school year in September.
