ORS 327.290¹
Legislative findings relating to student achievement

The Legislative Assembly finds that:

(1) The state has an interest in ensuring that public resources for primary and secondary schools are used to achieve the outcomes established under the Oregon Educational Act for the 21st Century in ORS chapter 329.

(2) To achieve that purpose, the School Improvement Fund is established so the state may support activities directly related to increases in student achievement while still allowing school districts and education service districts flexibility in determining the specific activities necessary to support students.

(3) It is the intent of the state in establishing the School Improvement Fund to link these activities to the recommendations of the Quality Education Commission established under Executive Order 99-16 and the recommendations of the Quality Education Commission established under ORS 327.500 (Establishment).
