District Needs Assessment

Posted: September 24, 2019

Student Success Act

The Oregon Legislature passed and the Governor signed the $2 billion Student Success Act (HB 3427) in Spring 2019. This is a historic and much-needed investment in K-12 schools.

School districts will be required to apply for funds. Districts must demonstrate engagement of the community in a needs assessment process prior to the application for funds. The needs assessment includes the District’s existing Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) and an expanded public engagement process with multiple and diverse stakeholders.

Districts are allowed four broad uses for the grant proposals:

  1. Increasing instructional time
  2. Addressing student health and safety needs
  3. Increasing adults/decreasing class size
  4. Expanding well-rounded learning opportunities

Programs must also meet students’ behavioral and mental health needs and increase academic achievement as well as reduce disparities among student groups.

Phase I community engagement will seek input on what is working and what improvements are needed.
