What does it mean for 4J students who live within this area?

  • Students currently enrolled could:

  • Continue attending their former neighborhood school—Twin Oaks Elementary, Kennedy Middle School or Churchill High School. Bus transportation will not be provided after the 2008–09 school year.
  • Continue attending any other school the student has transferred to through the school choice process. Parents would continue to provide transportation.
  • Students new to the area, starting school, or advancing to the next school level (moving from elementary to middle school or from middle school to high school) may enroll at Edgewood, Spencer Butte or South Eugene. Students who wish to attend a different school must request a transfer through the school choice process.
