State and US Representatives

Care about your neighborhood school? Share your thoughts and ideas with your State and U.S. Lawmakers

The Oregon Legislature meets annually and makes decisions on education bills that have a major impact on the state’s educational system and your neighborhood school.
State lawmakers are also responsible for creating a state budget.

A majority of the Gresham-Barlow School District’s funding comes from the state of Oregon.

The school district also receives funding from the federal government for programs such as:

  • Title I (Federal funding for schools/districts with a high percentage of low-income families.)
  • Special Education (Serving students with disabilities.)
  • English as a Second Language (Serving English language learners.)

It is important for lawmakers to hear from the people they represent regarding:

  • School funding
  • Educational priorities
  • Education bills
