District gathers input on user experience of schools constructed since 2000

Voters in Eugene School District 4J resoundingly approved a bond measure in November 2018 to fund improvements at every 4J school and for every 4J student. 

Bond funds will be used to repair schools, improve security, update technology and learning materials, support career technical education, address overcrowding and replace three aging school buildings.

Before beginning to design the new schools, the district is first assessing performance and reviewing what has worked well or not so well in other school buildings constructed in recent years. While most of the school buildings in the district are more than 50 years old, eight schools have been built more recently with funds from previous bond measures.

The schools constructed since 2000 are:

  • Chávez Elementary School (2004)              
  • Holt Elementary School (2004) 
  • Howard Elementary School  (2016)       
  • River Road/ El Camino del Río Elementary School (2017)
  • Madison Middle School (2005)                  
  • Cal Young Middle School (2006) 
  • Roosevelt Middle School (2016)       
  • Arts & Technology Academy (2017)                       

Staff, students, parents, volunteers, building renters, and other community members who are familiar with one or more of these newer school buildings are invited to provide feedback on their user experience of the facility. A survey is available online in English and Spanish.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences. This is a first step to inform future building design. There will be additional opportunities for community input as the planning and design process moves forward.
