Student Success Act

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    The Student Success Act originated as House Bill 3427 and was signed into law by Gov. Kate Brown. It provides a historic $2 billion investment in the state’s preK-12 education system.

    "This is a huge and historic win for public education in general and for Portland Public Schools in particular," PPS Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero wrote in a letter to the community. "Our work begins now to lay out a plan for how we will use our share of the additional funds, starting in the 2020-21 school year, in ways that will improve the educational experience for all of our diverse learners."

    The infusion of funding will help PPS begin the transformative work to fulfill the longterm vision for the district identified through a comprehensive, community-oriented Visioning process. The PPS Vision (read the full Visioning document) describes our goals for the graduating class of 2030, and  the educational experience that will increasingly be the reality for each of our graduates from 2019 onward.
