Student Success Act: Weigh In on Investments for Success  

District developing plan for $12 million in funding • Community forums November 13–25

New funding is coming to 4J schools. Oregon’s Student Success Act is expected to provide Eugene School District 4J about $12–13 million per year starting with the 2020–21 school year—about a 5% increase in the district’s general fund budget.

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 join the conversation.

Student Success Act funds must be targeted to increase academic achievement, reduce disparities among student groups, and meet students’ behavioral and mental health needs. 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.

In September, the district gathered input from families, staff and other community members to assess current needs. Now, in a second phase in November, the district is engaging community dialogue and input on potential investments to support student success. Later in the month, an online survey will be posted to gather input from community members who aren’t able to attend an in-person forum or prefer sharing their thoughts in another format.

This community input will help guide the district’s investment plan to support our students’ success.
