CITYWIDE RACIAL EQUITY GOALS AND STRATEGIES EQUITY GOAL #1 We will end racial disparities within city government, so there is fairness in hiring and promotions, greater opportunities in contracting, and equitable services to all residents.

EQUITY GOAL #2 We will strengthen outreach, public engagement, and access to City services for communities of color and immigrant and refugee communities, and support or change existing services using racial equity best practices.

EQUITY GOAL #3 We will collaborate with communities and institutions to eliminate racial inequity in all areas of government, including education, criminal justice, environmental justice, health, housing, transportation, and economic success.

OVERALL STRATEGIES 1. Use a racial equity framework: Use a racial equity framework that clearly articulates racial equity; implicit and explicit bias; and individual, institutional, and structural racism. 2. Build organizational capacity: Commit to the breadth and depth of institutional transformation so that impacts are sustainable. While the leadership of electeds and officials is critical, changes take place on the ground, through building infrastructure that creates racial equity experts and teams throughout the city government. 3. Implement a racial equity lens: Racial inequities are not random; they have been created and sustained over time. Inequities will not disappear on their own. It is essential to use a racial equity lens when changing the policies, programs, and practices that perpetuate inequities, and when developing new policies and programs. 4. Be data driven: Measurement must take place at two levels—first, to measure the success of specific programmatic and policy changes; and second, to develop baselines, set goals, and measure progress. Using data in this manner is necessary for accountability. 5. Partner with other institutions and communities: Government work on racial equity is necessary, but insufficient. To achieve racial equity in the community, government needs to work in partnership with communities and institutions to achieve meaningful results. 6. Operate with urgency and accountability: When change is a priority, urgency is felt and change is embraced. Building in institutional accountability mechanisms using a clear plan of action will allow accountability. Collectively, we must create greater urgency and public commitment to achieve racial equity.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

PP&R classes, activities, rentals, and sports events may be canceled due to inclement weather, such as ice, snow, or extreme heat. Check with your PP&R facility for the most current information via phone or online at portlandparks. org. Some recreation programs may run as conditions and staff availability allow. Safety is a major factor in determining operations at each PP&R facility. PP&R facilities, our social media outlets, and our website will all feature operating information including opening and closing times. 3


HELLO PORTLANDERS! My name is Adena Long, and I am proud to be the new Director of Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R). I got my start in the field of parks and recreation 22 years ago as a park ranger; and I left my post as Deputy Commissioner of Parks in New York City this past February to join you here in beautiful Portland. I am a “Parkie” through and through, and I am excited to call the City of Roses my new chosen home. I am also deeply committed to arts and culture. On a personal note, my mother is a dancer and my father was a photographer. And at NYC Parks, I managed a vast array of citywide public programs, including what we affectionately called “Arts, Culture & Fun.” Portland is renowned not only for its awe-inspiring park system but also its creativity, innovation, and maker culture. So I am proud to be able to steward PP&R’s affordable arts classes in our arts and community centers and free cultural events in our green spaces—all of which support and celebrate our city’s imagination. I hope to see you again and again in our parks and centers! Warmly,

ADENA LONG, DIRECTOR PORTLAND PARKS & RECREATION

What s new? We’re making changes to our guides to save trees, reduce costs, and allow you to plan a bit further in advance. Starting with this guide, we will be producing three Arts & Culture Guides per year (instead of four) on the following term cycle: • Winter/Spring (combined) • Summer • Fall/School Year For the combined Winter/Spring guide, you can register for both terms starting Monday, November 18, 2019. Also, we recently changed the start time of the first day of registration from 5:00am to 12:30pm—when all of our arts, community, and customer service centers are open and fully staffed. This will reduce your wait time and provide better customer support. We are committed to continuous improvement, so please let us know how we are doing!

Multnomah Arts Center is NOT closing! We repeat... Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) is not closing. Contrary to the rumors and inaccurate media reporting, MAC is very much open and buzzing with activity. We are grateful to those who have reached out to express your support and commitment to the arts center. The best way to ensure that MAC continues to be a thriving and accessible regional arts center is to keep taking classes, keep coming to our performances and art shows, and keep sharing your positive experiences with friends and family. Additionally, please consider making a donation to MAC’s supporting non-profit, Multnomah Arts Center Association (MACA), which generously supports need-based scholarships, at multnomahartscenter.org/donate.

PHILIP AND GAYLE NEUMAN CELEBRATE 40 YEARS AT CMC IN 2020 Even though they don’t look a day over 39, our pair of treasured Renaissance music experts have been growing a loyal following of students and audience members at the Community Music Center since 1980. The Renaissance winds program actually started in 1955 under our first CMC director and Renaissance man, Robert Crowley. Arthur Perrow, among others, taught the classes in the 70’s. After the calendar turns to January we’ll have a special commemorative concert to mark the occasion. Join us for a musical celebration on Wednesday evening, March 11, featuring performances by the Neumans with former and current Renaissance music students and groups.

SCHOOL YEAR 2019–2020 PRIVATE LESSON INFORMATION HOW TO REGISTER 1. Submit your application • New students may register at any time until March 14, 2020. Students are placed in lessons throughout the school year as openings occur • If applying for a scholarship, submit a separate scholarship form as soon as possible. • School Year registration covers end-of-September to early June (up to 33 weeks). Summer registration is separate. • When indicating your day/time availability, keep the following information in mind: (a) The more availability listed increases the chances of being placed for a lesson. (b) For young students (typically below age 10), indicate the time the practice-assisting parent and student can attend together. • Scheduling priority may be given to application in order received, so prompt form submission is advised. • Students who are returning from prior term and not expecting to change teachers may apply online. See our website for links. 2. Enroll in your required class. • Private lesson students must concurrently attend a musicianship class. Register for these classes separately by indicating your choice on the paper application form or by calling the CMC office. Prompt registration is advised. Also see below. • Parents of new students are required to register for and attend a parent orientation nearest to the start of lessons. Choose orientation based on Suzuki Method or non-Suzuki. 3. Wait patiently for a call from the office confirming a lesson time. • It may take several weeks for us to schedule your lessons. • We maintain a waitlist through April for students we cannot place in lessons by the start of fall term, and for those applying after the start of fall term. 4. Confirm lesson time. • Your prompt reply to calls from us is appreciated, and helps us serve you efficiently. • Once confirmed, we will book your lessons in our computer system and send you a receipt with the lesson times and days. • If you need to change your lesson time, please complete a lesson schedule change request form at the CMC office. • Please review your receipt—you are responsible for attendance and payment. • NEW: Once booked, there are no credits or make-ups for missed classes through the year (except when sick—see below). PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS Practice Students should practice daily for at least as much time as their lesson length, complete any homework assigned by instructors, and progress in keeping with their ability to learn. Students who fail to progress to the best of their ability will receive instruction on how to improve practice habits. If progress is still not made, CMC may require the student & parent to sign and fulfill a practice-improvement agreement. A student may be dropped if not progressing. Musicianship Class The CMC private lesson program is more than just lessons. It is a sequential curriculum designed to foster well-rounded musicians. Students are required to enroll in, attend regularly, and do satisfactory work in an appropriate Skills class, Orchestra, Choir, Piano, or Chamber Music (fees vary; see catalog listings for prerequisites, special requirements, schedules & pricing). Beginners must choose Skills Foundations. Private Lesson Program students may take these courses at the reduced fee (see catalog for info). The musicianship requirement may be fulfilled by the student receiving comparable training elsewhere. This is documented on the application form. Attendance (UPDATED 2019) Because regular attendance is important, lessons and classes should not be missed except in unavoidable instances. As a courtesy to everyone an absence affects, the CMC office must be notified as much in advance as possible to allow for instructor schedule adjustments. Absences are classified as either Excused or Unexcused. • EXCUSED ABSENCE FOR ILLNESS - Once per term a student may be granted an Excused Absence from lessons due to illness, if the CMC office is notified of the absence in advance of the lesson. In this case a prorated credit for that missed lesson will be granted. Please inform CMC of the absence as soon as possible. • UNEXCUSED ABSENCE - Any cause not listed above. No credits or make-ups will be offered for Unexcused Absences. NOTE: A student may be dropped for more than two Unexcused Absences a term, three absences in a row, or four absences of any type during a term. Withdrawal Notice Once application is made, a full two weeks (14 calendar days) prior notice of withdrawal is required. Fees paid for lessons beyond two-weeks from notice will be refunded. This policy is different than the general PP&R withdrawal policy. 26

Suzuki or Non-Suzuki: Which method should I choose? String Lesson Program students at CMC have a choice of two distinct ways of studying their instrument in weekly lessons. The age of the student, as well as how much the parent is able to attend lessons and work with the student at home will help us make this choice with you. If you have questions, please call the CMC office (503-823-3177). CMC provides an orientation to parents choosing either method.

COMMUNITY MUSIC CENTER

NON-SUZUKI (TEACHER/STUDENT) METHOD This is the classic one-to-one approach to learning an instrument. The string player will practice every day at home between lessons on assignments given by the instructor. Likewise, parent/guardian involvement is not required, although parents of students younger than 10 are strongly encouraged to assist the child with at-home practice. Parent observation of lessons is usually optional and is highly recommended under the age of 10. At the start of lessons you may wish to discuss this with your instructor. New students choosing non-Suzuki lessons register for and attend an orientation in fall. (See Parent Orientation on page 13.)

SUZUKI (TEACHER/PARENT/STUDENT) METHOD This is a family approach to music instruction that creates a “learning triangle” between teacher, parent (or guardian) and student. The parent, who does not need to have prior musical training, assists the young students in their practice at home each day as assigned by the instructor. When the student is not practicing, the family listens to the recordings of the songs as much as possible to create the immersion that the method requires for the best learning experience. Music becomes like another language in the home. Parents are required to attend an orientation class in fall. (See Parent Orientation on page 13.) When filling out the application form on page 25, please list availability when the child and practicing parent can attend lessons together. Parents/ guardians are welcome to rent instruments from CMC to practice at home with their child—see below for details.

CMC has a limited number of string, wind, and keyboard instruments available for enrolled students to rent. Rental cost is $50 per term (prorated). Payment is due at the time of rental. Scholarships are available. Rental Process 1. Use our online form or call the CMC office (503-823-3177) to get on a waiting list for an instrument.* This should be done even if you are not yet confirmed for private lessons (youth), or if you are on a group class waiting list (adults). Youth private lesson students can get on the waiting list by checking the appropriate box on the application form (page 25). *Online form is at: communitymusiccenter.org (Click on “Instrument Rentals” on the sidebar.) 2. Once payment arrangements are made for private lessons/group class, set a fitting appointment with the instrument rental staff. 3. Meet with the rental staff. You’ll complete a rental agreement, make payment AND receive your instrument (if your size is available). If one is not available, you may choose to remain on the waiting list. *Preference is given to scholarship students, then youth, then adults.

ABOUT ROSEWOOD

This partnership program between The Rosewood Initiative and the Community Music Center provides full-scholarship private lessons and group classes for youth in East Portland. The Rosewood Initiative is a nonprofit organization and facility providing social services. It is located at the intersection of two school districts and on the border of two cities (Gresham and Portland).

The Community Music Center is providing classes for participants of the Rosewood RIHO program (Refugee & Immigrant Hospitality Outreach). While parents build their English skills, their children get a group music experience, led by our knowledgeable instructor and assisted by generous and capable volunteers. For more information on RIHO, see online: rosewoodinitiative.org/riho.

Music in Parks

We gave over 100 free music lessons―and some fun family jams, too―in Parklane Park (East Portland) this summer in partnership with PP&R’s Free Lunch + Play program.

SCHOOL YEAR 2019-2020 – FOR PRIVATE LESSONS How to Register 1. Complete this form and return it to MAC after reading program requirements below. This application covers October to early June. 2. Please wait patiently to be contacted by the office confirming a lesson time. This occurs about two weeks before lessons begin for continuing students and one week before for new students. If we cannot place a student, we will notify you as soon as possible. We maintain a waitlist through April. If your availability changes, please notify the office as soon as possible. 3. Upon lesson confirmation, pay tuition to complete registration. Payment plans, automatic payment deductions, and scholarships are available by arrangement. PRIVATE LESSON PROGRAM POLICY Thank you for choosing Multnomah Arts Center for your music lessons. Our goal is to make music a meaningful and enjoyable part of your life, and we believe that participation in the arts is essential to healthy individuals and communities. Thank you for your patience as we work to provide the best schedule for everyone in our community. MAC’s Private Music Lesson Program strives to provide high quality music education for as many dedicated students as possible. To this end, MAC makes the following requirements, which students should carefully consider before committing to lessons. 1. Practice Expectations Students should practice often. A good guideline is to practice each day for at least the duration of your lesson. Talk to your instructor about their recommendations for you. Instructors may require purchase of additional materials not included in listed registration fee 2. Attendance Requirements Regular attendance is important. Lessons should not be missed except in unavoidable circumstances. When a student must be absent, notify the MAC office as soon as possible. 3. Cancellations and Absences When Multnomah Arts Center cancels a lesson due to teacher illness, inclement weather, or other reasons, the teacher will offer the student a make-up lesson if possible, generally by extending the term one week. Sometimes the lesson may be made up by offering the student longer lessons to make up the time. If make-ups are not possible by the completion of the school year, a refund will be provided. When the student cancels or misses a lesson, the student is not eligible for a refund. The teacher is not obliged to make up the missed lesson. However, if the student has given fair notice with a good reason, the teacher may schedule a make-up at their discretion. 4. Withdrawals Once registered, the lesson time is reserved through the end of the school year (in early June). To withdraw before then, please notify the MAC office at least seven days before the next lesson, and a pro-rated refund of paid fees will be issued for the lessons that remain in the term. 5. Lesson Change Requests To request a change to your lesson day, time, length, or instructor, please complete the Lesson Change Request Form, available in the office. We will do our best to accommodate your requests. 44

ABOUT MULTNOMAH ARTS CENTER

TENANT INFORMATION

Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) provides excellent arts education in the visual, performing, and literary arts at an affordable cost to students of all ages. We offer programs in music, movement, dance, theatre, woodshop, literary arts, conditioning, metal arts, mixed media, printmaking, drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, and more. These extensive class offerings are provided by over 100 professional teaching artists from the region. Annually, MAC serves more than 6,000 students regardless of ability, age, race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, or financial means. Programs run year-round, and scholarships are available. Along with our vibrant arts education program, MAC presents—and partners to bring—theatre, music, dance performances, gallery exhibitions, and other special events to the community; spaces are available to rent.

In addition to providing community arts education programming and community rentals, Multnomah Arts Center provides space to these nonprofit community service providers. Contact information is provided below as a courtesy to the public.

Founded in 1973, MAC is one of the largest comprehensive community arts education programs in the nation. A program of Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R), MAC is a model community center, sharing and maintaining space with multiple nonprofit community service providers. At the heart of MAC’s success is the all-volunteer board of Multnomah Arts Center Association (MACA), a nonprofit body founded in 1983 that supports Multnomah Arts Center. While PP&R supports the annual operation and maintenance of Multnomah Arts Center, the nonprofit MACA makes it possible to exceed expectations for a community center by raising money to provide additional scholarships, outreach, community engagement, and make facility and program improvements.

The Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center was built as a firehouse in 1910. In 1982, it was established as an arts center by Charles Jordan, Portland’s first African American Commissioner and Parks bureau director. The IFCC has served as a cultural home for Portland’s African American community since its founding, and has been vital to the creative life of many Portland artists. Charles Jordan

PAYMENT PLAN POLICY FOR ARTS PROGRAMS Payment is due at the time of registration. A payment plan may be set up at no extra charge. However, the first payment is due at the time of enrollment. Payment plans are to be established at site of activity.

It is the customer’s responsibility to contact PP&R if the credit card number has changed, to check your receipts, and to keep your contact information up to date with PP&R. We do not send out notices for cards that have been declined.

Payment plans can make auto-payments on a credit card that must be valid through the date of final payment. An automated email is typically sent to payers 5 days before the card is to be charged.

Some term-length activities are rolled over from one term to the next; in these cases, the payment plan needs to be re-established by customer request after rollover (notice will be given).

A separate receipt will be created for each activity that has a payment plan to process and track payments more accurately.

Contact the site at which you registered if you have questions about your payment plan.

Payment plans without auto-payment or with non-standard due dates may require site supervisor approval and the customer accepts responsibility for making payments by the due date without a reminder from PP&R (note late fees below). Payments are calculated by dividing the total fee of the activity by the number of payments to be made. Payments will not necessarily match the per-class amounts, and payments in a payment plan may increase or decrease based on course cancellations, enrollee withdrawal, change of length of payment plan, or credits for activities.

102

LATE FEES • A late fee of $20 may be charged for a past due balance. • Accounts with payments past due may prevent students from enrolling in future activities. • Late accounts may be sent to a collection agency. • If financial circumstances make it impossible to meet the agreed upon terms of the payment plan, please contact the program supervisor or coordinator.
