Centennial School District Student Success Act Updates

The Oregon Legislature passed and the Governor signed the $2 billion Student Success Act (HB 3427) in Spring 2019. This is an historic and much needed investment in K-12 schools.   The Centennial School District could be able to access an estimated $5.5 million per year through a state application process.

School districts are required to apply for funds, and must engage their community in a needs assessment prior to the application for funds. We will host a series of Community Conversations – Speak Up 4 Student Success in several locations throughout CSD. Schools will also be conducting community surveys during parent conferences.

The money will serve 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;
  • Students navigating poverty, homelessness, and foster care; and other students that have historically experienced disparities in Oregon Schools.

Here is how the process works:
