Integrated Planning


    In 2022, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) implemented a new initiative referred to as Aligning for Student Success: Integrated Guidance for Six ODE Initiatives(Click Here), requiring Oregon school districts and charter schools to undergo a comprehensive needs assessment and application process to continue receiving funds from six key grants. The intent of the Integrated Guidance initiative is to streamline the grant application process while simultaneously aligning strategies to provide better outcomes for students. The six grants that are a part of the initiative include:

    • High School Success (HSS) is focused on the improvement of graduation rates as well as career and college readiness.
    • Student Investment Account (SIA) is focused on reducing academic disparities while increasing academic achievement and meeting the mental and behavioral health needs of students.
    • Continuous Improvement Planning (CIP) is focused on the continuous improvement of educational opportunities.
    • Career and Technical Education (CTE/Perkins) is focused on the development of academic knowledge in addition to technical and employability skills for secondary students.
    • Every Day Matters (EDM) is focused on addressing chronic absenteeism through increased attention on student engagement, school culture, climate, and safety, culturally sustaining pedagogy, and family and community involvement.
    • Early Indicator and Intervention Systems (EIIS) are focused on creating and supporting cohesive systems of data collection and analysis, interventions, and supports.
      This new process places a greater emphasis on equity, community engagement, and a more well-rounded education.

    High School Success

    What is it? A fund approved by Oregon voters in 2016 that provides money to school districts to establish or expand high school programs providing career technical education, college-level courses, and dropout prevention strategies.

    Purpose: Help high school students get on track for graduation beginning in ninth grade, increase on-time graduation rates, increase equitable access to advanced coursework, and improve high school graduates’ readiness for college and career.

    Student Investment Account

    What is it? A major fund of the Student Success Act, a business tax that Oregon lawmakers approved in 2019 to provide additional funding for K–12 school districts for specific purposes. The Student Success Act provides an estimated $2 billion every two years, with at least half of that amount coming from the Student Investment Account.

    Purpose: Meet students’ mental or behavioral health needs, and increase academic achievement for students, including reducing academic disparities for economically disadvantaged students, students from traditionally underserved racial or ethnic groups, and students with disabilities.

    Continuous Improvement Planning

    What is it? State education rules require EPSD9 and other K–12 school districts to file a continuous improvement plan to the Oregon Department of Education every three years. The plan is essentially a school district’s periodic self-evaluation to identify strengths and areas of improvement. The plan includes information on the district’s curriculum, instructional programs, professional development activities for educators, community outreach and engagement

    Purpose: Improve graduation rates and educational outcomes for all students

    Career and Technical Education/Perkins V

    What is it? States receive federal money for career technical education to improve access and participation in programs that prepare students for high-wage, in-demand careers in construction and other trades. A federal law passed in 2018 brought changes to the $1.2 billion annual federal investment in career technical education. In response, the state approved a four-year plan to increase career exploration, awareness, preparation, and training in CTE programs.

    Purpose: Improve CTE programs to bring greater consistency of training and access for all students, particularly for students in historically underserved communities.

    Every Day Matters

    What is it? An ongoing state campaign working with educators, parents, and community leaders to support school attendance for all students

    Purpose: Ensure students are attending school every day as consistent attendance correlates to higher graduation rates and later success as adults.

    Early Indicator Intervention Systems

    What is it? A group of educators who gather and analyzes data at the school or district level to identify and support students who are at risk of not graduating or dropping out; for example students who are chronically absent from school, or those who have not earned enough high school credits toward graduation as ninth graders.

    Purpose: Identifies students at risk of dropping out or not graduating and provide them the academic and social supports to keep them on the path toward graduation and post-high school success.
