We recently received an e-mail from Lynden Evans, who is with an organization called PHC Northwest. According to their website, PHC Northwest provides “broad-based educational, training and job opportunities (with full union benefits) for thousands of people with developmental, physical and mental disabilities”.
Lynden’s e-mail indicated that they are exploring the possibility of partnering with Portland Public Schools to open a charter middle school in SE Portland. They are currently in the public comment phase of the process. As part of that process, they have put together an online survey, and are looking for members of the SE Portland community to respond to the survey so that they can gather feedback. If you’re interested, you can take the survey here:
