Student Success Act



The Student Investment Account represents a historic commitment to our students. Learn more about how the North Bend School District will use this investment to provide our students with the best education possible

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:

  1. Meet students’ mental or behavioral health needs.
  2. 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.

Student Success Act Conversation


“We need a program for kids that gives them a chance to learn at their own rate.”
“I’d like to see more classes and certificates added to the CTE program.”
“I think we need more teachers at the elementary level to provide smaller classes.”
“Communication is the key to success; make sure parents know what is happening in our schools and community.”
“Just support our teaching staff in any way we can!”
“The best improvement I can suggest is having more staff, like counselors, extra help so students feel safe and someone to talk to.”
