Teachers, Hip-Hop Fans To Crowd School-Board Meeting

PPS School Board

Another busy night for the Portland School Board this evening.

Portland Public Schools' teachers, who have been working without a contract since July 2008, will hold another rally outside the meeting tonight. (Here's a summary of last week's mediation session, from the Portland Association of Teachers union.)

And proponents of a new charter school focused on the recording arts are also gathering at the meeting tonight when the School Board will vote on their proposal. Superintendent Carole Smith has endorsed the plan but has asked that the charter school open in 2011, after the district has implemented the first changes of its high-school redesign.
