The news of the day at Portland Public Schools was supposed to be this,
the reorganization of the district's high schools.
Instead, it's also this: Heidi Franklin, the chief financial officer at PPS, is resigning on July 2,
after more than 11 years with the district. She is the second high-level PPS official to announce her departure in recent weeks, after Cathy Mincberg, the district's former chief operating officer and Franklin's old boss.
