Student Success Act Timeline

The Student Success Act will provide additional funding for public schools and early learning in Oregon, about half of it going directly to school districts and eligible charter schools based on enrollment through the Student Investment Account. Each school district must develop a plan for how to invest these funds to increase academic achievement, close gaps between groups of students and meet students’ mental and behavioral health needs.
