Signed into law in May of 2019, the Student Success Act is a game-changer for our schools. When fully implemented this act will invest approximately $2 billion for early learning and K-12 education, and close to $500 million will go directly to Oregon school districts and eligible charter schools through the Student Investment Account. This account is a non-competitive grant. The focus of the Student Investment Account is on key areas for improvement – from reducing class size, increasing instructional time, addressing health and safety needs and ensuring a well-rounded education.
In order to apply for these funds, our district is required to meaningfully engage stakeholders – particularly students and families from underserved communities and staff (each one of you) who serve our students every day.
