Student Investment Account Plan

Signed into law last May, The Student Success Act is a historic opportunity for Oregon Schools. When fully implemented, this Act will invest approximately $2 billion for early learning and K-12 education, with close to $500 million going directly to districts and eligible charter schools through the Student Investment Account (SIA). The student investment account is a non-competitive grant that focuses on five key areas:

  • Reducing Academic Disparities
  • Meeting students’ mental and behavioral 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
  • Establishing and strengthening partnerships

Thanks to the collaboration, input and support of our KairosPDX families, we were able to identify three priority areas which were used to craft our plan:

  1. A need for mental/behavioral health supports.
  2. A need for teacher collaboration time and innovative assessment specific to mathematics.
  3. A need for culturally relevant curriculum and enrichment opportunities.
