Board members, Michael Bailey and Mike Rosen, recognize the unanimous decision by the Portland Public School Board to earmark funds in the November bond and the years of advocacy by Angela Jarvis-Holland, Executive Director. This is a good step towards equity and improving education for all students. NW Disability Support (All Born (in) and Northwest Down Syndrome Association) are supporting this bond and will be sharing more information.
