High School Graduation

Graduation Dates   |   Graduation Requirements 

Eugene School District 4J is committed to supporting all students to complete high school ready for college, careers and life. Our strategies include:

  • Providing more instructional time for high school students. Students who are in class more are learning more, earning more credits and are more likely to graduate on time. To help students get off to a strong start in high school, we’ve targeted funding to provide a full class schedule for all 9th and 10th grade students. More students in grades 11 and 12 also are enrolled in a full day of classes. The trimester common schedule in place in high schools since 2013 and the standard school schedule implemented in 2018 provide the same or more instructional time than our schools’ previous schedules.
  • Expanding opportunities for students to stay on track for graduation. Students who fail a class can quickly repeat the class or get remediation so they don’t fall behind in earning credits. Students are given extra assistance, when needed, to meet the essential skills graduation requirements. We’ve expanded the AVID college readiness program to all 4J high schools and middle schools, and now some elementary schools as well, to help students build skills for high school and college success.
  • Strengthening opportunities for students to earn a diploma over more than four years. We recognize that some students need more time to reach graduation requirements while remaining in their home high school.  
  • Investing in quality teaching at all school levels. Professional development is focused on building skillful teaching practices districtwide. The district’s teacher effectiveness and growth system is aimed at helping teachers and principals set annual goals for continually building their teaching skills and effectiveness in the classroom.
