Board Holds Virtual Community Forum on Corridor Elementary

Facing significant school funding shortfalls and decreased student enrollment at Corridor, 4J Superintendent Gustavo Balderas has recommended that the district consider closing Corridor Elementary School at the end of this school year.

Corridor is a small alternative program in the North Eugene region. Over the past several years its enrollment has decreased to 142 students in fall 2019. Corridor is currently co-located in a building which will be demolished in preparation for construction of the new North Eugene High School building. The program is planned to move to a wing of the current high school building this fall, after renovations and additions this summer to facilitate the relocation.

The school board will hold a virtual community forum on Wednesday, May 27, 5:30–6:45 p.m., followed at 7 p.m. by a board work session. The community forum and the work session will be broadcast on KRVM 1280-AM and streamed online.

To request to speak to the school board about Corridor Elementary School, send an email by 5 p.m. on May 27 to information@4j.lane.edu with “Request to speak about Corridor” in the subject line and the speaker’s full name in the email. Requests received by 5 p.m. on May 27 will be placed in a random order and speakers will receive a link to participate, sent via email before 5:30 p.m. Each speaker will have 2 minutes to speak. The board will hear comments from as many community members as possible during the span of the community forum.

The virtual community forum was originally planned to be held on May 31, and has been moved earlier at Corridor parents’ request. Community input also can be provided by sending email to board@4j.lane.edu. If the subject line includes “Public Comment,” it will be published as public comment to the school board.
