Eugene School District 4J is seeking public input as it prepares to hire a new superintendent. The district has been without a permanent superintendent for more than 18 months, and hopes to have a new leader in place by July.

The district will hold five online forums this month to gather feedback from the community on what they’d like to see in a new superintendent. The district is also gathering input with an online survey.

In 2020, the previous Eugene 4J superintendent, Gustavo Balderas, resigned from his position in order to take a similar job at a larger school district near Seattle. Cydney Vandercar has been serving as interim superintendent.

Chris Lehman has been reporting on Oregon issues since 2006. He joined the KLCC news department in December 2018 and became News Director in March 2023. Chris was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and graduated from Temple University with a degree in journalism. His public broadcasting career includes stops in Louisiana and Illinois. Chris has filed for national programs including “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.”
