Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Student Success

House Bill 3144 passed in the 2023 Legislative Session and directs the Department of Education (ODE) to develop and implement a statewide education plan for Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander students who are in early childhood through post-secondary education programs. The Department has convened an advisory group comprised of members of the Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities and other partners from across the state of Oregon to advise the Department on the creation and implementation of the plan which is currently being worked on. 

Through this program, the Oregon Department of Education will award grants to Early Learning Hubs, providers of early learning services, school districts, Educational Service Districts, post-secondary institutions of education, Tribal governments, Community Based Organizations or a consortium of entities, to implement the strategies that will be outlined in the plan.
