Update on the Student Success Act - Please add your voice to this important process

Oregon’s Student Success Act was signed into law in the spring of 2019 and is forecasted to invest an unprecedented $2 billion into K-12 education across the state over the next two years. Areas of investment include:

  • A student Investment Account (50%)
  • An Early Learning Account (20%)
  • A Statewide Education Initiatives Account (30%)

Approximately $500 million will go directly to Oregon school districts and eligible charter schools through the Student Investment Account. This funding is predicted to bring an estimated $10 million a year for two years to the Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD).

Investments are to be focused within the following priority areas:

  • Class size/Additional adults in the classroom
  • Well-rounded education
  • Instructional time
  • Health and safety

School districts will be engaging with their communities to identify how these funds will be put to work to support students.  TTSD is committed to a thorough, equitable process that engages voices from across our system and from every corner of our community.
