PTA News Related to the Boundary Change
The January 19 PPS West Side Boundary Proposal Community Meeting at Wilson High School drew a crowd and provided some good feedback to the DBRAC regarding the proposed attendance boundary changes.
PPS and its Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) are reviewing school boundaries to alleviate overcrowding at some schools. Rieke is very likely to see some change to its boundaries as early as Fall 2016, and it's possible current students will not be grandfathered in.
What can you do about it? Lots!
Portland Public Schools and the District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee are considering boundary changes for a number of west side schools to address overcrowding at several schools. School boundaries determine where children attend school.
The advisory committee, using its values framework and feedback from school communities, is now considering additional possibilities for balancing enrollment across schools on the west side.

Show PPS how committed Rieke families are Come one, come all to the PPS District-Wide Boundary Review (DBRAC) meeting that may shape the future of Rieke and other SW schools.
The PPS Boundary Review Advisory Committee (PBRAC) just put forth a proposal that sends our neighborhood kids to Hayhurst instead of Rieke. They amended their original proposals after significant push back from other schools. They had months to organize an effective response, but we have only 10 days before they are done with the review process.
