Student Success Plan: Forum Canceled, Feedback Invited

Plan developed with community input is slated for approval March 18 • Feedback invited via email 

New funding is coming to Oregon schools, and each school district is developing its local plan for how to invest these funds to support student success.

The Student Success Act is targeted to increase achievement, close gaps between groups of students, and meet students’ mental and behavioral health needs, with a particular focus on groups of students who have historically experienced disparities, including economically disadvantaged students, students of color, students with disabilities, and students learning English as a second language.

Eugene School District 4J has developed its proposed plan to invest new state funds to support student success, aligned with extensive community input, student data and evidence-based best practices. The district has spent several months analyzing data, reviewing research, and seeking community input at public forums, small group meetings, targeted community events, and online surveys, to inform development of the plan to best support student success.

Major components of the plan include making significant investments to improve early reading skills; hiring more teachers to reduce class sizes in targeted grades; adding more mental health and behavioral supports for students; and providing full schedules for high schoolers. Through the investment plan, the district would hire nearly 100 new staff members and make other investments to support student success in the coming years.

Staff, parents, students and other community members are invited to provide feedback on the plan before it is finalized and submitted to the state.

The final community forum that was scheduled on Thursday, March 12, has been canceled, in accordance with new state guidance to help reduce the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. Community members who had planned to attend the forum are invited to review the proposed plan overview and details and share comments via email.
