New ECCO School Building Opens

Alternative high school program starts year with new building

Eugene School District 4J’s ECCO alternative high school program has a new home in downtown Eugene. ECCO relocated this fall from the Lane Community College (LCC) campus to the downtown area, next to the district office building at 200 North Monroe Street.

The district contracted with Modern Building Systems to erect a high-quality pre-fabricated building over the spring and summer to serve as ECCO’s new home. The new school building is located to the northeast of the 4J Education Center, near the city’s Owen Rose Garden. 

ECCO’s new building has six classrooms, a childcare room, support areas, school office space and a common area. The existing kitchen facility at the Education Center is providing students with healthy and fresh school meals. 

The alternative high school program was housed at LCC for six years until district’s lease agreement expired at the end of the 2018–19 school year. Several sites were evaluated as the new home for ECCO and a new building at the 4J Education Center site was determined to be the most accessible for students from across the district who enroll in the alternative high school program. 

ECCO will continue to serve current students attending the program and other students who find a separate alternative high school setting their best fit to help them succeed.
