4-J Officials Want Public Input On Spending Share Of Student Success Act

Brian Bull

The Eugene 4-J school district wants local input on how to spend the $12 million they expect from the Oregon Legislature.

The money is part of the Student Success Act, which Governor Kate Brown signed earlier this year.  District Chief of Staff, Kerry Delf, explains the importance of holding these community forums.

“Every district needs to make a plan that’s informed by our data on student achievement and needs to be informed also by our community’s voice,” Delf tells KLCC. “So this is an important part of our process to hear from our community where priorities are.”

The first community meeting is tonight (11/13) at Sheldon High School at 7:00pm. All the meetings will be in English with Spanish translation, with childcare on-site.

A Spanish meeting with English translation will be held next week at Churchill.
