Student Success Act
  • What is the Student Success Act?

    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


    Close to $500 million in non-competitive grant money for all Oregon school districts and eligible charter schools.
    New money has two purposes:

    1. Meet students’ mental and behavioral health needs.
    2. Increase academic achievement and reduce academic disparities for
    • Students of color;
    • Students with disabilities;
    • Emerging bilingual students; and
    • Students navigating poverty, homelessness, and foster care; and other students that have historically experienced disparities in our schools.

    What are the 5 Areas for Input?

    1. Reducing academic disparities (gaps between outcomes for different student groups)
    2. Meeting students’ mental and behavioral health needs
    3. Providing access to academic courses
    4. Allowing teachers and staff sufficient time to collaborate, review data and develop strategies to help students stay on track to graduate
    5. Establishing and strengthening partnerships
