Portland Public Schools

Portland Public Schools, founded in 1851, is a PK-12 urban school district in Portland, Oregon. With more than 49,000 students in 81 schools, it is one of the largest school districts in the Pacific Northwest.

With highly trained teachers and staff; an engaged parent community; strong partnerships, and a focus on closing the racial educational achievement gap, PPS is at its highest graduation rate in at least 15 years and is enjoying its seventh straight year of enrollment growth. Thanks to the state Legislature, school funding is improving and thanks to Portland voters, a PPS School Building Improvement Bond is now fueling the modernization of our aging school buildings for 21st century learning.

Why contract with Portland Public Schools?

On July 16, 2012 the PPS Board of Education adopted the Equity in Public Purchasing and Contracting (EPPC) Policy.

The EPPC Policy has three primary goals:

  • Provide greater professional, supplier, construction, and personal service opportunities to minority-owned businesses, women-owned businesses and emerging small businesses.

  • Increase the numbers of women and minorities in the construction trades through apprenticeship opportunities on District construction contracts.

  • Leverage our public contracting activity to expand the number of young people of color and young women participating in a wide variety of career learning programs.
