PASSED: Record-Breaking K-12 Funding (HB 5015)

Advocacy from hundreds of OSEA members through 2023 convinced lawmakers that fully funding education is a priority for school employees, our state and its future. Lawmakers heard us and raised the state’s K-12 budget from $9.5 billion to a record-breaking $10.2 billion for the 2023-25 biennium. This $700 million increase will make it harder for school districts to claim budget shortfalls during future bargaining sessions. It is an investment in Oregon students and the staff who support them.
