Help define the Kellogg middle school boundaries

The Portland Public Schools district is looking for SE Portland community members to participate in the process of drawing the boundaries for the new Kellogg Middle School, which is set to open fall of 2021.

Family and community members with ties to our Southeast Portland schools are invited to apply for the Guiding Coalition that will review draft proposals, consider community input and make recommendations for new boundaries, school feeder patterns and special program locations.

Selected members will be asked to be available for meetings, open houses and other gatherings on Thursdays, from 6 to 8 p.m., through November 2020. The coalition will meet from April to June, then September to November, at locations in Southeast Portland. Childcare and interpreters will be available.

The application window, which opened Tuesday, March 3, will close March 17. Applicants will be notified if they are selected by March 20. The first Guiding Coalition meeting will be held on Thursday, April 2.
