Portland Public Schools
Bylaws & Policies


It is the policy of the Board of Education that all students be provided a meaningful education and access to the programs provided by the District. Limited proficiency in the English language should not be a barrier to equal participation in the instructional or extra-curricular programs of the District. It is, therefore the policy of this District that those students identified as having limited English proficiency will be provided additional support and instruction to assist them in gaining English proficiency and in accessing the educational and extra-curricular programs offered by the District.

Further, the District will endeavor to assist the student and his/her parents in their access to District programs by sending notices to the parents in a language or format that they are likely to understand (also see Policy 2260).
