FY2016 School Budget Wins Voter Approval
Posted on 05/13/2015

Portland voters on May 12 approved passage of a referendum question validating the Portland Public Schools’ $102,776,657 budget for fiscal year 2016.

“Thank you, voters of Portland, for showing your support for the Portland Public Schools by approving our proposed budget for the 2015-2016 school year,” Portland Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk said. “This budget puts students first, invests in our employees, and is fair to taxpayers. It will allow us to retain all staff in locally funded positions and to focus on five priorities: strengthening the core academic program, stimulating progress for all learners, driving innovation, investing in infrastructure and increasing family and community engagement. The budget also helps move us forward toward our goal of becoming the best small urban school district in the country by 2017.”
