Student Success Act / Ley de Éxito Estudiantil

Posted on: October 10, 2019

The Oregon Legislature passed and the Governor signed the $2 billion Student Success Act (HB 3427), a historic and much needed investment in K-12 schools. Greater Albany Public Schools could be able to access an estimated $5.5 million per year through a state application process.

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.

We want to be sure to invest these resources in alignment with our community vision. In conjunction with a new Strategic Plan, input from parents, teachers, staff, students, and the community at large will shape the future of Greater Albany Public Schools!

La Legislatura de Oregón aprobó y la Gobernadora firmó la Ley de Éxito Estudiantil de $ 2 mil millones (HB 3427), una inversión histórica y muy necesaria para las escuelas desde Kínder hasta el 12 grado. Las Escuelas Públicas de Greater Albany, podrían acceder a un estimado de $ 5.5 millones por año a través de un proceso de solicitud estatal.

Los distritos tienen cuatro usos generales para las propuestas de subvención:

  1. Incremento del tiempo de instrucción.
  2. Abordar las necesidades de salud y seguridad de los estudiantes. 
  3. Aumento de adultos/disminución del tamaño de la clase.
  4. Expandir oportunidades de aprendizaje integrales.

Los programas también deben satisfacer las necesidades de salud mental y conductual de los estudiantes y aumentar el rendimiento académico, así como reducir la desproporción entre los grupos de estudiantes.

Queremos asegurarnos de invertir estos recursos de acuerdo con nuestra visión comunitaria. ¡Junto con un nuevo Plan Estratégico, los aportes de padres, maestros, personal, estudiantes y la comunidad en general darán forma al futuro de las Escuelas Públicas de Greater Albany!
