Public Hearing April 28 on Revised Elementary School, Middle School
Bell Schedule Proposal

Students in the Portland Public Schools will get 20 more minutes of learning time added to their school day, starting in September 2015. To accommodate the longer student day, the board on March 31 approved new start and/or end times for the city’s public high schools and middle and elementary schools. However, to respond to parent and staff feedback, the board will be reconsidering start and end times for middle schools and elementary schools. A public hearing on the proposed changes is set for Tuesday, April 28, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Lincoln Middle School. See the latest draft bell schedule and read more.
