South Wasco County School District 1 - Phase I - Needs Assessment
Signed into Law last spring - Oregon's Student Success Act is a historic reinvestment in our public schools. When fully implemented the Student Success Act will provide an additional $1 billion per year in additional funding for Early Learning and K-12 education. Roughly, 50% of the new funding will go directly to schools in the form of the Student Investment Account. The SIA will focus on four key areas; (1)Increasing instructional time, (2) addressing health and safety needs, (3) reducing class sizes and (4) providing a well-rounded education.
South Wasco County School District expects to receive approximately $250,000 total in new funding each year, and must develop a plan for how to invest these additional funds to best support student success in our district. We cannot write this plan alone! To make this plan as impactful as possible for the students we serve we need input from students, staff, parents/guardians and our community.
In order to gather broad-based input on what is working well and what needs to be improved upon at South Wasco County School District, we are asking that you complete this survey. Your input will then be used to inform our Student Investment Account grant application to Oregon Department of Education.
To frame your thoughts, each question heading will outline the allowable uses for this new funding as per the law. We have also given you some thought starters for each section. This information will provide the district with input that can be incorporated into the District's needs assessment.
Thank you for your time on this survey :)
