"Achieving Excellence in Education is the mission that guides our work in McMinnville School District. In Spring 2019, state leaders passed HB 3427 known as the Student Success Act, which will increase revenue for K-12 schools. This winter, each Oregon school district will apply for funds from the Student Investment Account created by the Student Success Act. 
 
Applications will be available for additional funding in four key areas: 
     1.  Increased instructional time
     2.  Student health and safety
     3.  Class size reduction
     4.  Well-rounded learning opportunities
 
We have the opportunity to gather input from stakeholders including school staff, students, parents, and community members that will represent our student body and their diverse needs. We will use this feedback to make data-driven and equity-based decisions. The 
McMinnville Student Success Act Survey (y en espanol) is one opportunity for you to share your priorities in these categories and we hope that you will participate. The survey will close on October 6, 2019.
 
In addition to this survey, on October 22, 2019 we will be holding a community engagement event at Duniway Middle School from 6:30-8:00 PM. At this event community stakeholders will dialogue around these topics to share ideas on how we can maximize our resources with the Student Success Act. 

Finally, next month we will also be inviting the community to come tour our newly remodeled McMinnville High School on October 2, 2019. The community tour will begin at 5 PM followed by Grizzly Fest at 6 PM which is a MHS welcome back celebration including food, music and program highlights."
