Promise update: New ‘Promise Kids’ will debut soon on website

Students from six Oregon school districts will be featured this month as part of the third year of the “Promise of Oregon” campaign.

Their photos, as well as statements from the students about why they represent the “Promise of Oregon,” will debut starting next week at the campaign website, www.promiseoregon.org.  The photos were taken at schools in Sisters, Siuslaw, Beaverton, Crane, Portland and Eugene.

During its first two years, the Promise campaign has celebrated the accomplishments of Oregon students and helped galvanize support for increased funding for public schools. Legislators ultimately settled on a State School Fund figure of $7.4 billion for 2015-17 – up $850 million from the previous biennium.
