Athletics / Co-Curricular

this is content

Portland Public Schools athletic departments support athletics and other co-curricular activities.

All levels of interscholastic and intramural athletics include the teaching of team concepts, practicing fair play, demonstrating good sportsmanship, educating the athlete to become a total person and playing all contests within the bounds of the rules.

Co-Curricular activities are defined as programs out of class that are supervised and/or financed by the Portland Public Schools. Participation in co-curricular activities is voluntary. These activities are not part of the regular academic curriculum, are not graded, and do not earn credits. The goal of these activities is life enrichment of each participant through development of good sportsmanship, citizenship, skills, health, strength, self-reliance, emotional maturity, and social growth.

All activities are aligned with the Portland Public Schools’ Mission, Vision, and Beliefs, and honor the complex wholeness of each learner.
