Tell Portland Public Schools: Stop closing OUR schools!

To be delivered to Carole Smith, Superintendent

Petition Statement

PPS Superintendent Carole Smith: Our neighborhood schools need to be supported and treasured as a vital part of a vibrant community, not boarded up and leaving us no option but to send our children across town for an education. I demand that you put an immediate stop to your plans to close yet another neighborhood school in Portland.
There are currently 1,290 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

For years now Portland Public Schools has been systematically closing down its neighborhood schools, primarily those serving students and families of color. Last year they closed 2 schools. This year they are preparing to close yet another one. This practice undermines public education, segregates schools and tears neighborhoods apart. If PPS truly believes in equity like it claims to, school closures are NOT a solution!
