Unveiling Our Strategic Investment Plan

Plan to Invest $18 Million in New Funding

Article Date: Feb 11, 2020

At the Feb. 11, 2020 Board of Directors meeting, Superintendent Shay Mikalson shared Bend-La Pine Schools' Strategic Investment Plan with the board members.

Built on six months of conversations with staff, community members, families and students, as well our Comprehensive Plan, Bend-La Pine Schools' Strategic Investment Plan outlines our plans to invest approximately $18 million in additional funding from the state of Oregon. Through the Strategic Investment Plan, we will hire more than 125 new staff members focused on three strategic priorities:

  • supporting students' health and safety,
  • reducing class size,
  • and increasing access to a well-rounded education.

The Board of Directors will discuss the plan during the March 10 meetings.
