Oregonians for Student Success

Do you believe every Oregon child should have the best education possible?  https://oregoniansforstudentsuccess.org/

Classes too crowded for learning. Students in desperate need of counseling support. The Legislature’s school funding proposal would have devastating real-world impacts,
The Joint Ways and Means Committee co-chairs’ 2019-21 budget framework, the basis for state spending decisions, proposed $8.87 billion for the State School Fund, $100 million less than the governor’s budget proposal in November.

That difference translates into reduction in staff (layoffs), cut days and programs and larger class sizes.  

The Legislature is still working out exactly how much it will put into education. The Joint Committee on Student Success is crafting a revenue proposal to create a School Improvement Fund of about $2 billion for the next biennium. OSBA’s Oregonians for Student Success offers tools and resources to help education advocates press for stable and adequate funding for schools.
