school bond

With a potential Eugene 4J school bond on November’s ballot, board members aim to make a decision regarding the budget by May. They hope to incorporate ideas from the community during 6 forums. KLCC’s Briana Friden went to one of them at Cal Young Middle school.

After two recent bond defeats, Fern Ridge school buildings have only fallen into further disrepair. Bond proponents in Veneta and Elmira have high hopes their measure will pass in May.

The Fern Ridge School District serves a growing community of about 10 thousand people in Walton, Noti, Veneta and Elimira. The 26-million dollar bond would pay for facilities and technology. Almost half the funds would be used to replace Elmira Elementary School. Jackie Turle is the principal there. She says the 65-year old building isn't healthy for kids or staff.
