What’s Your Priority?
Weigh In on Investments for Student Success

Online survey will help inform district plan for $12 million in funding

Oregon’s Student Success Act is expected to provide Eugene School District 4J about $12 million per year—a 5% increase in the district’s general fund budget—through the law’s Student Investment Account, starting next school year.

Each school district must develop a plan for how to invest these funds to increase academic achievement, close gaps between groups of students, and meet students’ mental and behavioral health needs. We want to hear your thoughts about how to target funds to best support student success where there is the greatest need.

Last month, 4J held a series of community forums to share feedback from the needs assessment completed this fall, and seek input on example investments to address the priorities and needs identified by our staff and community.

Now, a survey about potential investments, incorporating input from the forums, is posted online to seek additional feedback. If you weren’t able to attend the November forums or prefer to share your thoughts in another format, this online survey is another opportunity to weigh in. The survey is open through winter break.

Please take 20–25 minutes between now and January 7 to complete the survey.

Your input will help guide the district’s investment plan to best support our students’ success. The plan will be developed this winter, approved by the school board this spring, and submitted to the Oregon Department of Education by April 15.

Thank you. Your input is an investment in our students’ future.
