The Student Success Act passed the legislature in the spring of 2019 and provided approximately $2B in new funding for K-12 education. Half of those funds come in the form of direct aid to districts through the Student Investment Account (SIA). The Sherwood School District’s allocation is approximately $3.9M. This is a truly historic opportunity for our schools!
Funds allocated via the SIA must focus on two critical areas: improving student achievement while decreasing disparities in achievement, and improving students’ mental health. Based on an extensive community engagement process, thorough analysis of district data, and consultation with the Board and district administrators, staff prepared the final SIA application for review and adoption by the Board.
On March 11, 2020 the Sherwood School District Board of Directors voted on approval of the District’s official SIA application at their Regular Meeting. To review the application in full, please click here.
