PCRI residents are invited to improve their credit through paying rent online! Beginning Spring 2015, PCRI will accept rent payments through an Automated Clearing House (ACH), making it simple and easy to start building and improving your credit. Residents who have completed similar programs have seen credit scores improve an average of 23 points.
PCRI hosted information sessions in July for residents interested in the program. Residents who were not able to attend the information session are still encouraged to learn more by contacting Amy Dang via email or at 503-288-2923 x131.
For residents who are interested in the convenience of autopay, but are not interested in building credit, PCRI has an alternate payment option. Please contact us for more information.
You can take the survey here or via paper copies in six languages available at all schools. Please share with friends, family and neighbors, even those without children in schools, so they may also share their views.
The results of the survey are vital to the District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee, a group of 26 community members tasked with shaping how PPS evaluates school boundaries. This survey will help ensure that every student can get a great education at schools in every neighborhood.
Additionally, PPS invites community members to provide more input at a community workshop on school boundaries. The workshop, hosted by the District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee, will be on May 16th from 9:30am – 1:00pm. Childcare and refreshments will be provided. Please register by emailing email@example.com.
