Please Join Portland Public Schools in Creating an Equitable Vision for School Enrollment & Program Balancing in SE PDX

As part of a larger multi-year enrollment and program balancing process, the PPS SE Guiding Coalition has been tasked with developing a plan for adjusting school boundaries. feeder patterns, and/or program placements at Lane Middle School and Harrison Park K-8. In keeping with the District's commitment to racial equity and social justice, PPS is actively seeking to develop a deep understanding of the experiences, thoughts, and concerns of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) students and families that may be impacted by this important decision. If you are a current or incoming BIPOC student or parent at Lane, Harrison Park or a neighboring school, please join us for a dialogue session to share how PPS schools can meet students' social emotional needs and educational aspirations.

PPS COVID-19 Student Vaccine Information

September 16, 2021

Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский


On September 16, families received a brief survey (5-10 minutes) about your students and the COVID-19 vaccination.

In short, we’d like to determine how many of our students (ages 12 and older) are fully vaccinated against the virus and as we anxiously await approval for the COVID-19 vaccine for younger students (age 5 to 11), we’d like to plan for targeted outreach for families to quickly access the vaccine. The information you share will help us prioritize vaccine access and outreach to schools this fall.


Included in this brief survey is a question about your student’s home access to a computer and the internet. As we become a district that further integrates the use of technology in our teaching and learning, this information will better prepares us to equip students and families with these tools.

Please take a moment to complete your unique survey for by September 30, 2021.

Thank you for your support in taking this survey.
