When implemented for the 20-21 academic school year, the Student Investment Account will provide an investment directly to Oregon school districts and eligible charter schools. The Student Investment Account is a non – competitive grant program, and the purpose is to:
- Meet students’ mental or behavioral health needs.
- Increase academic achievement for students, including reducing academic disparities for historically and currently underserved youth.
The North Bend School District is expected to receive about $2,000,000 to put towards these efforts. Through our engagement work, we have drafted goals that reflect our community’s valuable feedback and align with the mission of the Student Success Act.
