Student-Led Conferences
Student-Led Conferences will be held on November 7 and 8 at Kelly Middle School. At this conference, your student will guide you through a collection of reflections and work samples completed in classes this year. Your student will also share specific goals they set for success in each class. Students show ownership of their learning as they explain their goals; what they have been learning; why it is important; and how it has affected their thinking. The family presence and participation are vital for the success of this event.

Flyers were sent home this week with your conference time if you are unable to make your assigned time please call the office to re-schedule (541-790-4740). Your student-led conference will take place in one of our common areas and will be organized by grade level. While grade-level teachers will be present the majority of the conference is shared between students and families. This is not the place for individual parent/teacher conferences. However, asking teachers clarifying questions, discussing future communications and providing feedback to our teachers fits with this event.

Our teachers regularly communicate through Synergy Parent VUE and other electronic classroom portals. You are always encouraged to use Parent VUE and e-mail to keep in communication with teachers if you have concerns. If email is not preferred, phone calls are welcome.

It is very important that both you and your student attend this conference. We hope to see each and every parent or guardian and their child at this exciting event, and we look forward to hearing your comments after the experience.

Traditional parent/teacher conferences are not scheduled at Kelly Middle School. We believe that growing student ownership of individual learning and communication are skills that promote success in many learning environments beyond Kelly Middle School. Please know that we value communicating with you and hope to meet your students’ needs through Student-Led Conferences and other ways of sharing information together.

School Bond Measure on November Ballot
A measure that would provide local funding for Eugene public schools is on the November 6 election ballot.

The bond measure, Measure 20-297, would allow Eugene School District 4J to:

  • Make improvements at every school
  • Improve student safety, security and equity across the district
  • Provide better learning environments and materials for students
  • Boost career technical education at all 4J high schools
  • Repair and update schools that are more than 50 years old
  • Replace three aging buildings that are worn and have high energy and maintenance costs

By law, bond money can only be spent on capital improvements such as facilities, equipment, curriculum, and technology. It cannot be used to pay for teachers, school days or school programs.

If the measure is approved, property tax rates for Eugene School District 4J bond debt would increase by about $0.66 per $1,000 assessed value. Property taxes would increase by about $135 a year for the median homeowner in the district, with an assessed property value of $204,000.

Voters must be registered by October 16 to vote in this election. Ballots will be mailed to registered voters beginning October 17 and must be returned to the county elections office or an official ballot drop box by November 6, 8 p.m.

For more information, please see www.4j.lane.edu/bond.
