PPS Expecting 8% Drop In Student Enrollment Next Year

(Portland, OR) -- There won't be as many students in Portland Public Schools next year. District officials project overall student enrollment will drop eight-percent for the 2022-23 school year in a trend being felt all over the state and across the country. Elementary schools will see the biggest drop of more than 20-percent from pre-pandemic levels. To minimize the financial impact, the district will tap into other state and one-time federal funds to maintain more than 40 staff positions.
