Oregon Department of Education and Early Learning Division Grant Opportunities
During the 2019 legislative session, Oregon’s leaders made a real commitment to our children, our educators, our schools and our state with the passage of the Student Success Act. When fully implemented, the Student Success Act is expected to invest $2 billion in Oregon education every two years; that’s a $1 billion investment in early learning and K-12 education each year. Of those funds, $200 million goes into the State School Fund and the remaining is distributed into three accounts: the Early Learning Account, the Student Investment Account and the Statewide Education Initiatives Account.
As we support all of Oregon’s children and families to learn and thrive, we value equity, dedication, integrity, and collective wisdom to benefit Oregon children and families. In order to do this well, we must equitably implement policies, practices, procedures, and legislation that translates into resource allocation, education rigor, and opportunities for historically and currently marginalized youth, students, and families including civil rights protected classes. This means the restructuring and dismantling of systems and institutions that create the dichotomy of beneficiaries and the oppressed and marginalized.
We have a tremendous opportunity to change outcomes for our children and the future of Oregon. We will accomplish this together by centering on equity and the needs of our students; developing strong relationships with districts, early learning hubs, community organizations, and other stakeholders; and implementing all investments with integrity.
