    Student Success Act

    The Gresham-Barlow School District, and schools across Oregon are about to realize a historic opportunity to improve our educational system with the Student Success Act. This new law signals a critical and important focus on rural communities, students of color and other student groups who have been historically underserved. 

     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.

    In order to apply for these funds, our district is required to meaningfully engage stakeholders – particularly students and families from underserved communities, community members, and staff members who serve our students every day.

     As you can see, we need all voices in this conversation.
