2018 School Choice
New timeline, same great options

In Eugene School District 4J, our school choice policy is that students may request to enroll in any 4J school, provided there is a place available. School choice requests are accepted in an order determined by lottery.

Earlier deadline: The deadline for 4J district residents to be included in the school choice lottery for 2017–18 is January 31, earlier than in previous years. School visits will be scheduled in the month of January. To be included in the annual school choice lottery, 4J residents must apply between January 1 and January 31, by midnight. Non-district residents must apply between March 1 and April 1.

Who needs to apply: All students who wish to enroll in a school other than their neighborhood school must submit an application. This includes incoming siblings of current students, students who have moved out of our school neighborhood or the district and want to remain enrolled next year, eighth-grade students who want to move up to a high school other than their neighborhood school, and non-residents who enrolled this year on a one-year inter-district transfer. Their enrollment is not automatic.

Who does not need to apply: If your student is already enrolled in our school on an in-district school choice transfer and has not moved out of the district, or is enrolled on an out-of-district multi-year open enrollment transfer, you do not need to reapply.

Come see our schools: If you or any of your friends are interested in exploring your school choice options, the district will hold an Elementary School Showcase on Saturday, Jan. 6, from 10 a.m. to noon. All 4J schools will hold tours and other opportunities to visit during the month of January.

Morning BEST Homework Help

Morning BEST offers students an opportunity to get the day off right. And, it is a convenient way for parents to be assured their child has a place to go early in the day that will provide instructional support.

Morning BEST is 7:30 – 8:30 AM and meets in the Kelly Library. To sign up for Morning BEST simply fill out the program application and write “Morning BEST Too!” on the cover at the top. If you only want Morning BEST, write “Morning BEST Only”.  Once we receive your application, we will call you and let you know when your child can start.

For more information contact Jim Wilcox, Kelly BEST After-School Coordinator. Email at Wilcox_j@4j.lane.edu or call 541-790-4748.
