The 2000 Quality Education Commission was appointed by Governor John Kitzhaber and State School Superintendent Stan Bunn in November 1999 to validate and refine the Oregon Quality Education Model (QEM). The model is helping lawmakers establish the costs of providing the education programs necessary for Oregon's children to meet educational goals.
The 2001 Legislature established the Quality Education Commission in statute to determine the amount of funding needed to meet the state's quality education goals with the passage of HB 2295.
Oregon’s Quality Education Model: A Tool for School Districts
The Task Force on School Funding was established by HB 2506 (2013). Its directive is to “make recommendations regarding possible modifications to the funding formulas used to distribute State School Fund moneys to school districts and education service districts.”
The task force consists of 13 members. The Speaker of the House appoints two members; the Senate President appoints two members; and the Governor appoints 9 members. The Governor’s appointees shall be persons who represent school teachers, school administrators, school district business managers, district school board members, and education service districts.
A report from the task force must be submitted to interim committees related to education no later than October 1, 2014.
