This past year, Governor Brown signed “The Student Success Act” which marked a turning point for funding education in Oregon. Equity was the driving vision behind this legislation. The act is expected to generate an approximately 2 billion investment in education which goes into the Fund for Student Success. From that money, $200 million goes directly into the State School Fund for additional support to districts. The rest must be distributed to support a variety of needs in three specific areas – At least: 20% to an Early Learning Account, 50% in a Student Investment Account and up to 30% in Statewide Education Initiatives. Marcola School District will be working with stakeholders to develop and implement a plan that best meets the needs of our students.
