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. Sutherlin School District could access an indeterminate amount of funds through a state application process.
It carries significant investments in early learning, existing programs and new efforts to bring Oregon within reach of funding schools at the Quality Education Model level for the first time since the inception of the Quality Education Commission in 2001. This could include adding instructional time, providing mental and behavioral health supports, reducing class size, implementing a more well-rounded education, fully funding High School Success (Measure 98), school safety improvements and more.
