Portland Promise Overview
The Portland Promise is the name of the Portland Public Schools' strategic plan. It lays out our goals and strategies. The Portland Board of Public Education approved the plan in 2017 after a series of public forums involving staff, students, parents and other stakeholders in the community. The Portland Promise serves as a roadmap, aligning the district’s work with its mission and vision.
The four goals of the Portland Promise —Achievement, Whole Student, and People, all centering on the fourth key goal of Equity — serve as an important blueprint to guide student learning.
The Portland Promise details key strategies for meeting those goals, and defines the metrics we use to measure our progress as a school district. Learn more about our four goals below:
