Title: Portland Public Schools Website

Code: IJND

Status: Active

Adopted: February 1, 2011




The Portland Public Schools maintains an official web site to provide general information about our school system as well as information about educational programs, extracurricular activities and school events. This web site is intended to support the educational mission of the schools, to enhance the curriculum and learning opportunities for students and staff, and to inform the larger community about our schools.   The web site does not create, nor is it intended to create a public or limited public forum.


The web site also provides the School Board a medium to publicize its official position on issues related to the schools such as school building projects, proposed school budgets and public policies affecting the schools.  The web site is an outlet for the official message of Portland Public Schools and is not a forum for dissemination of other views.  The content of the web site shall remain in the exclusive control of Portland Public Schools, its school board and designated agents. 


The Board has adopted guidelines to ensure that the Portland Public Schools web site is in compliance with applicable laws and meets the highest educational and quality standards.  The Superintendent is responsible for implementing this policy, the accompanying guidelines and any additional administrative procedures that may be needed to govern the day-to-day management of the web site.  The Superintendent may delegate specific responsibilities to the District Webmaster as he/she deems appropriate.
