EUGENE, Ore. -- The $319.3 million school bond for Eugene School District 4J is headed to victory.

As of this morning 67 percent of people have voted to pass the bond, with 33 percent voting against.

Work would include replacing North Eugene High School, Edison Elementary School and Camas Ridge Elementary School.

4J School Board member Anne Marie Levis said she and the district are thankful for the show of support from voters.

"It's phenomenal to have this endorsement of our schools, the work we're doing, the needs we have," Levis said. "We have no money to do things like build a new North Eugene High School, repair our roofs. So, anything that we didn't have from this bond, we'd have to take it out of the classroom."

The bond work would also involve making safety improvement to schools in the district.

Prior to Election Day, the public had a chance to speak with committee members at North Eugene High School about the impact the bond would have on students and families.

The committee was made up of educators, community members, business leaders and students.
