State Schools Superintendent Susan Castillo named sixteen Oregon public schools that have made significant progress in closing the achievement gap. The announcement was made in April at a press conference at Boise-Eliot School in Portland.
In an exciting and unique opportunity for students, parents, educators and community members, Portland Mayor Tom Potter is moving his office and City Hall to Jefferson High School. The week long visit, starting Monday January 14th at 7:45 am, will include a City Council meeting on Wednesday and the State of the City address on Friday.
The former Hariett Tubman Middle School on N Flint has opened this school year as the Harriet Tubman Leadership Academy for Young Women.

The article doesn’t suggest imminent changes, but it’s worth noting that Grant is bursting at the seams while Jefferson is half-empty.
