Student Success Act: A Look Ahead to 2020

Student Success Act Podcast

by Rafael Otto



In this week’s episode, we discuss the Student Success Act implementation with Scott Nine from the Oregon Department of Education; Parasa Chanramy, Policy and Implementation Director at Stand for Children; and our own Dana Hepper, Director of Policy and Advocacy at Children’s Institute.

Nine, assistant superintendent at ODE’s Office of Education Innovation and Improvement, leads the stewardship of funds from the Student Investment Account (SIA) under the Student Success Act.

Chanramy shares her thoughts on the SSA in the context of another major funding win for education, passage of Measure 98 in 2016. The measure, championed by Stand for Children, has been credited for helping boost Oregon’s graduation rate to an all time high last year.

Hepper gives listeners a preview of the Early Learning Account’s impact on existing programs and program expansion.
