Student Success Act

Update 10/11/19  In cooperation with our local teachers, Ashland School District is now offering two separate survey options.

Please provide your feedback on either survey!
The Oregon Legislature passed and the Governor signed the $2 billion Student Success Act (HB3427) in the Spring of 2019. This is an historic and much needed investment in K-12 schools. Ashland could be able to access an estimated $2.3 million per year through a state application process.
School districts will be required to apply for funds. Districts must demonstrate engagement of the community prior to the application for funds. In March of 2018, the Ashland School District reached out to staff, parents and community members to assess our priorities and develop our 2018-23 Pathways to Excellence Strategic Plan.  We plan to utilize our Strategic Plan, our Equity Policy and we need further feedback from our community in developing our grant proposal.
The state funds will have two purposes:
  1. Meet students' mental and behavioral health needs.
  2. 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.
During the month of October, we are seeking community engagement in two main areas: 
  • What is going well in Ashland Schools?
  • What areas/services/programs could we improve?
The Ashland School District's plan for gathering feedback includes: 
  • Two Survey Options!
​                In conjunction with our teachers, we are now offering two survey options for                                community, staff, students and families to provide input. In person focus groups with families, students, and community members
  • School Site Affinity Activity with District Staff
  • Engagement during regularly scheduled parent and student events, including:
    • Parent Night School Meetings
    • Black American Student Success Family Meetings
