Planning Begins for New Edison Elementary School

Community invited to meetings in June and August

Local voters approved a bond measure in November 2018 to fund capital improvements at every 4J school and replace three aging school buildings with high-quality facilities built for school safety, sustainability, modern seismic standards, and 21st century education.

In the South Eugene region, a new building for Edison Elementary School will be constructed first, followed by the new Camas Ridge Elementary School. A temporary school location will be created at the Willard school site at 29th and Lincoln to house school operations during construction, to allow each of the new schools to be rebuilt on their existing sites.

The architect team to design the new Edison Elementary School will be selected early this summer. Before school design begins, community meetings will be held to share updates about the design and construction process; discuss what we have heard from prior community engagement including school safety, neighborhood fit, community connections, and historic character; and hear more from the community on what is important in the design of the new school for this neighborhood.

Community meetings have been scheduled at Edison on June 17 and at Roosevelt Middle School on August 12. Parents, neighbors and other community members are invited to join in these conversations.
