4J Invites Summer Program Proposals

Funding available for community organizations to provide summer programs for 4J students 

Eugene School District 4J is soliciting proposals from community organizations to provide a variety of learning and enrichment programs for 4J students this summer.

While students, families and educators have been resilient in the face of the many challenges of the pandemic, it has impacted learning, social connection, and engagement for many students and families. Summer learning programs offer a significant opportunity to support students and families, help students expand their learning and re-engage with peers.

The district is eligible for state funding to provide summer academic and enrichment programs for students this year, as our community begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to expanding programs provided directly by the district, 4J will provide funding for additional summer programs offered by community providers.

Grant funding is available for three kinds of summer programs:

  • High School Programs: Offer high school courses for credits needed to stay on-track for graduation, for students in grades 9–12
  • K–8 Programs: Offer enrichment, academic learning and readiness supports, and/or social-emotional and mental health services, for students in elementary and middle school grades; priority is given to programs that include an academic component
  • K–5 Wraparound Childcare: Provide wraparound childcare services before/after summer programs, free for elementary school students who qualify for free meals or attend a Community Eligibility Program (CEP) school

Proposed summer programs must provide in-person, onsite activities to the maximum extent possible. Providers may request to use available district building space, with a facility use agreement.

Priority is given for programs providing services at no cost to 4J participants.

Priority funding will be awarded to programs serving students who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, including Black, Latinx, Native American and Pacific Islander communities; students experiencing disabilities; and students and families navigating poverty.

The district will hold an information session and Q&A for interested community organizations on May 19. Proposals will be accepted starting Friday, May 21, and until all funding is committed.

The district will share information to families about available summer programs when details are available.

Q&A Session for Potential Summer Program Providers
Wednesday, May 19, 9:30 a.m.
