EUGENE, Ore.– It’s that time of year again for parents to decide where their children will attend school next year. The 4J School District will hold a series of events at the 4J Education Center to help parents explore their options. It’s a great way for families to see what different schools have to offer, so they can make informed decisions if they do decide to enroll their children in a school that is not in their district.
Many parents like that they can choose where to enroll their children. 4J parent Laura Lee says she plans to enroll her daughter at Buena Vista Elementary school so she can go through the Spanish Immersion Program.
“I believe she would go to Willagillespie . We don’t have to pick that school. We can go ahead and choose different schools. We do have that opportunity and those choices and you get to see what your child is good at and what school offers that program and if he or she needs extra help or what not,” said Laura Lee.
Parents may choose their child’s school provided there is space available. Requests are accepted in an order determined by lottery. You can find a link to a schedule of events under Newslinks.
