What is the Student Investment Account?
The Student Investment Account represents 50% of the Student Success Act dedicated funding for public education in Oregon. It is nearly $500 million in non-competitive grant money for all Oregon school districts and eligible charter schools that will be available starting in the 2020-21 school year. New money is intended to meet students’ mental and behavioral health needs and to increase academic achievement and reduce academic disparities for:
- Students of color;
- Students with disabilities;
- Emerging bilingual students; and
- Students navigating poverty, homelessness, and foster care; and other students that have historically experienced disparities in our schools.
Five Areas for Input
- Reducing academic disparities (gaps between outcomes for different student groups)
- Meeting students’ mental and behavioral health needs
- Providing access to academic courses
- Allowing teachers and staff sufficient time to collaborate, review data and develop strategies to help students stay on track to graduate
- Establishing and strengthening partnerships

These sessions will be facilitated by Superintendent Ryan Noss and Finance and Operations Director Olivia Meyers Buch. Participants will be able to learn more about the Student Success Act and share their thoughts about what student success looks likes in Corvallis schools.

- Wednesday, November 6, 6:30 – 7:30 pm, at Linus Pauling Middle School
