Equity, Inclusion & Instruction

Información en español

Eugene School District 4J is pleased to present a virtual screening of the film LIKE. LIKE breaks down why we find social media so irresistible, examines who is controlling whom, and gives viewers the tools to pivot to a more balanced and contented relationship. It features Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, including the co-creator of the ‘LIKE’ button, experts in brain science, and teenagers.

Medical and science experts explain the behavioral changes that come from chemical effects on the brain. But the 49-minute-long LIKE does not leave you with a sense of fear and foreboding. 

The core of the documentary is built around the kids and teens interviewed, and the empathy that they build with their audience as they look honestly at their usage and dependence on these tiny devices, consider the good that can come from and be transmitted via social media and rethink the relationship to one where they are much more aware and in balance.  

 4J families also have the opportunity to watch the film online. Students are encouraged to watch and have conversations with their parents regarding the topics.

 LIKE is the third film in 4J’s four-film series presented this school year to help spur conversations about important social issues faced by today’s youth.

Welcome! In 4J, equity is: 

  • Ensuring that each and every learner receives the necessary resources they need to individually succeed.
  • Reducing the predictability of who succeeds and who fails.
  • Creating change to support underserved and historically excluded students, including students with disabilities.
  • Cultivating the unique gifts and talents of every student.

Equity Goal

Eugene School District 4J is committed to eliminating gaps in opportunities and barriers to access which are highly predictable by a student’s race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, disability, socioeconomic status, and geographic location.

We share the goal of improving outcomes for each and every student.

Equidad, Inclusión e Instrucción

¡Bienvenidos! En el 4J la equidad significa: 

  • Garantizar que cada uno de los alumnos reciban los recursos necesarios que necesiten para tener éxito individualmente.
  • Reducir la previsibilidad de quién tiene éxito y quién fracasa.
  • Crear cambios para apoyar a los estudiantes desatendidos e históricamente excluidos.
  • Cultivar los dones y talentos de cada estudiante.

Meta de equidad

El Distrito Escolar de Eugene 4J se compromete a eliminar las brechas en las oportunidades y las barreras de acceso que son altamente predecibles por la raza, etnia, género, identidad de género, estado socioeconómico y ubicación geográfica del estudiante.

Compartimos el objetivo de mejorar los resultados de todos y cada uno de los estudiantes.
