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:
- Meet students’ mental and behavioral health needs.
- 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:
