HR Schools Prepare Student Success Act Plans

Hood River County School District Superintendent Sara Hahn-Huston recently presented a draft plan to the district board for using three-point-five million dollars of funds coming from the state for the 2020-21 academic year as a result of the Student Success Act.  The proposal splits the funding primarily into three areas:  mental and behavioral health, well-rounded education, and class sizes.  Hahn-Huston says one of the advantages in the Hood River district is a priority has always been placed on lowering class sizes.  The district plans to put the draft on its website this week, more public input will be taken online and at the district board’s February 26 meeting at 6:30 in the district office, with the board expected to approve a plan to submit to the Oregon Department of Education at its March 11 meeting.
