Student Success Act Survey and Public Forums
September 25 @ 7:00 pm - October 26 @ 8:00 pm
New funding is coming to Oregon schools, and we want to hear from you about how to best support student success.
This spring the Oregon Legislature and Governor approved the Student Success Act (HB 3427). This is a historic and much needed investment in K–12 schools. Eugene School District 4J is expected to receive about $12–13 million per year starting with the 2020–21 school year.
School districts must invest these Student Success Act funds to meet students’ behavioral and mental health needs, increase academic achievement for all students, and reduce disparities among student groups. Funds may be spent in four broad categories:
- Increasing learning time
- Addressing student health and safety needs
- Reducing class size / increasing classroom staffing
- Expanding well-rounded learning opportunities
School districts will be required to apply for funds, with a process that begins with a District Needs Assessment to be developed with an expansive public engagement process with multiple and diverse stakeholders.
As part of the District Needs Assessment, 4J is seeking input from students, families, staff and community members about what student success looks like in our schools. What is going well in 4J schools? What are the challenges experienced? What areas, services and programs could be improved?
In a second phase in November, the district will seek community input on potential investments to support student success.
