EUGENE, Ore. -- With new funding coming to Oregon schools, the Eugene School District 4J will be holding forums to get community input on how to best support student success.

4J officials said the Student Success Act is expected to provide the district with a funding increase of about $12–13 million per year starting next school year.

They said the funds must be targeted to increase academic achievement, reduce disparities among student groups, and meet students’ behavioral and mental health needs.

Now, district officials want to hear about challenges students may be facing, services or programs that could be improved, as well as areas schools are doing well in. 

4J will be holding the following forums: 

  • Wednesday, Sept. 25, 7–8 p.m., Arts & Technology Academy, 1650 W. 22nd Ave.
  • Thursday, Sept. 26, 5:30–6:30 p.m., North Eugene High School, 200 Silver Lane
