Eugene School District 4J will receive a roughly 5% annual increase in the district’s general fund budget (about $12–13 million per year). The funds may be spent in four broad categories:
- increasing learning time,
- addressing student health and safety needs,
- reducing class size / increasing classroom staffing, and
- expanding well-rounded learning opportunities.
The district is engaging staff, families and community members to inform the planning for how to spend these funds to best support student success. You’re invited to share your opinions.
Childcare, light refreshments, and Spanish interpretation will be provided.
- Tue., Nov. 19, 5:30–6:30 p.m., Churchill High School, 1850 Bailey Hill Road

Bond funds would improve safety, career education, technology, curriculum, overcrowding, and replace 3 aging schools, if approved by voters. The Eugene School Board has unanimously approved referring a $319.3 million bond measure to voters on the November 2018 election ballot.
If approved by voters in November, the bond measure would provide improvements for all district schools. Bond funds would upgrade safety and security, support career education, address equity, improve technology, update instructional materials, and repair schools across the district. It would replace three aging school buildings—North Eugene High School, Edison Elementary School, and Camas Ridge Elementary School—and add classrooms at Gilham Elementary School.
