EUGENE, Ore. — The 4J School District held its first ever school showcase.
About 250 local families came together Saturday to learn about 4J’s new student transfer policy.
The event comes after the school board voted to accept up to 1,725 children outside the district which would bring more money to schools.
4J officials say the showcase is not only for out-of-district parents but families within it that want to check out other school options.
“Each school has its own unique character or unique programs and it’s an opportunity for us to offer parents the chance to talk to people about those programs,” said 4J Superintendent Sheldon Berman.
Transportation and bus route information was also made available.
The schools will host tours later this month.
