Healthy and Safe Schools Plan

Eugene School District 4J provides safe, healthy school facilities where students learn, grow and play.

The district has developed a plan in accordance with Oregon law to maintain safe and healthy school facilities for all students. This plan covers all school buildings and addresses five major areas:

  • Radon
  • Lead in drinking water
  • Lead paint
  • Integrated pest management
  • Communication

Update January 2018: The district’s Healthy and Safe Schools Plan is up to date and all required testing has been completed.

In 2017 the district completed its comprehensive testing for lead in all water taps used for drinking water and food preparation and mitigation where elevated levels of lead were identified. Proposals were solicited for future radon testing. The old buildings for River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary School and Arts & Technology Academy (former site of Jefferson Middle School) were demolished; new school buildings opened and comprehensive testing of water sources in the newly constructed buildings was completed.

The healthy schools plan and the results of water testing are available on this website:
