2024 Legislative Agenda
Parent's can learn about OEA's full legislative agenda in our action center, but priorities of note for Oregon parent's include:
Special Education Funding
OEA supports lifting the cap on SPED weighting in Oregon's formula for determining school funding. This change would help address Oregon's current crisis in special education, helping give districts the resources they need to providing students receiving special education services with the support they need to thrive.
Universal School Meals:
New federal funds mean Oregon has an opportunity to greatly expand access to meals at K-12 public schools, allowing more Oregon school districts to participate and providing more students with access to nutritious meals so they can focus on learning.
Ensuring continued state investments for summer school programs, and creating a task force focused on long-term sustainability for summer programming in Oregon.
