Student Success Act (HB 3427) 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
  • Student Health and Safety
  •  Class Size Reduction
  •  Well-rounded Learning Opportunities.


The law requires that districts gather input from stakeholders (e.g. school employees, students from underserved groups, parents of those students) and to use the data to enable the district to make equity-based decisions. This survey is one opportunity to share your priorities in the categories of investment allowed under the Student Success Act. Thank you for your input and taking the time to fill out the survey.
