Effort underway to balance students, find homes for programs

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A third proposal for new boundaries was unveiled by Portland Public Schools Thursday night, an effort to balance the number of students while also finding homes for several programs.

Among the programs needing homes are Chinese and Spanish immersion and creative science. In this latest proposal, creative science would move to Bridger Elementary.
