It’s hard to believe, but we’re about to mark three years since voters across this state approved Measure 98!
On November 8, 2016, Oregonians stood up by a two-to-one margin to demand targeted investments in three areas proven to increase graduation rates: career-technical education (CTE), dropout prevention, and college level learning opportunities.
Since then, these funds have had an incredible impact. In the first year alone, 438 full-time equivalent positions were created to support our students. At the same time, 831 new programs were approved. All 197 school districts in Oregon are benefiting from this non-competitive investment in their students’ success.
Help us celebrate this milestone by sharing your Measure 98 successes with us!
We’re asking educators, parents and students alike to share their proudest Measure 98 accomplishments with us. We will celebrate your stories at our upcoming Beat the Odds scholarship luncheon in Portland!
