Student Success Act - 2019

Since the passage of Measure 5 and Measure 50 in the 1990s our schools have been critically underfunded and our General Fund has become increasingly stressed in the recent decade. This session we dedicated a monumental investment in schools with the passage of the Student Success Act, which raises $1 billion annually from a business activities tax coupled with progressive income tax relief, all devoted to pre-k through 12th grade education. This investment is going towards reducing class sizes, fully funding Measure 98, and providing adequate resources for our schools, teachers, and students to thrive.
