PORTLAND, Ore–A tentative agreement was reached last night between Portland Public Schools Board and the Portland Association Of Teachers. Hybrid and in-person learning will begin April1, 2021. Parents may choose the option that will work best for their family.
Elementary students will attend in person classes 4 days a week with mornings or afternoons. To keep social distancing and cohort sizes down the alternating class plan seems to be the alternative. Students in grades 2-5 would begin classes April 5th. Students in grades 6-12 the week of April 19. Parents who want students to remain at home can take part in distance learning.
In a recent survey conducted by PPS kindergarten through 5th grade parents 70% were ready to have their children ready to return to some form of in person instruction
