Echo Schools Receives $4M Grant!

On January 27, 2016, the Echo School District was chosen by the Oregon Department of Education to receive a matching grant of $4 million. Echo was one of only 10 districts statewide to be chosen based on the priority list grants that are part of the Oregon School Capital Improvement Matching Program  (OSCIM) under Senate Bill 447. The primary goal of SB 447 is to encourage communities to pass local school district General Obligation (GO) bonds to address the deferred maintenance problems present in Oregon’s schools.

If voters in Echo pass the school bond on May 17, 2016,  for $4 million, the state will give the district an additional  $4 million, for a total of $8 million to be used for district schools.

If the bond does not pass, the school district will not get any money from the state.
