7:00 (10 min): Introductions

7:10 (60+ min.): Intro to Portland Public Schools Enrollment and Program Balancing Process

  • Neighbor Kim Jarema has been following the process and will do her best to explain it to us. 
  • One of the goals of the balancing process is to optimize the use of facilities. This includes figuring out which K-5 schools will feed into the new Kellogg Middle School. See image below.
Potential feeder schools/clusters for the scenario under consideration (Scenario 10)
  • Click here for a map of the scenario(s) that will be proposed at the Open Houses. Navigate to the Layer List in the upper right menu. Check Scenario 10 (the one currently under consideration) and uncheck Existing Conditions. 
  • The boundary changes decided on in December will impact enrollment at elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools beginning in Fall 2021.
  • These changes will impact PPS families in South Tabor. 
  • PPS is hosting virtual open houses this week and making decisions in December. This is your chance to see what the SE Guiding Coalition is narrowing in on — and to weigh in. The open houses are the evenings of 11/17, 11/18, and 11/19 (general one, on Thursday). 
  • Here’s a survey to provide feedback.

8:15 (or so): Updates and Announcements

  • There are no land use notices or decisions to discuss this month.

8:30 (or sooner): Adjourn
