SunshinePPS is an effort to create a community-driven, policy-oriented website to serve the families and community members of Portland Public Schools, the largest school district in Oregon. This site is a project of the Center for Transparent Analysis and Policy.
SunshinePPS comprises two interconnected services, :Wiki and :Talk. SunshinePPS:Wiki is a place to collect the community's institutional knowledge — the documents, analyses, wisdom, and histories that are now scattered in fragments around the community — into a central location so that it can be more easily discovered, more broadly disseminated, and less likely forgotten. SunshinePPS:Talk is a central meeting place for discussing policy issues throughout the district. Until now, such discussions have been siloed within a multitude of online and offline forums that are specific to individual schools or neighborhoods or programs.
SunshinePPS is not open to the general public just yet. It is being alpha-tested with a group of volunteers.
