Student Success Act: Community Input
Student Success Act (HB3427) will increase revenue for K-12 schools. This winter, each Oregon school district will apply for funds from the Student Investment Account created by the Student Success Act. Applications will be restricted to funding in four key areas: 1) increased instructional time, 2) student health and safety, 3) class size reduction, and 4) well-rounded learning opportunities.
All of this spending must address the following five different priority outcomes: 1) Reducing academic disparities between different student groups, 2) Meeting students mental and behavioral health needs, 3) Provide access to academic courses to all student groups, 4) Provide teachers and staff sufficient time and resources for professional development, and 5) Establish and strengthen community partnerships.
In accordance with this new law, FGSD is seeking input from our community and staff. This data will be used to enable the district to make equity-based decisions. Please share your priorities in the categories of investment set forth under the Student Success Act.
You are also encouraged to review the work done by Superintendent Parker and the Strategic Planning Committee that worked with community input to create the FGSD Strategic Plan which aligns with the categories of investment set forth under the Student Success Act.
