EUGENE, Ore -- The Eugene 4-J School District is hosting a community meeting Tuesday night to discuss the success and progress of the Vision 20/20 action plan.

The five step plan is meant to serve as a road map to the district, guiding how they allocate resources and make big decisions over the next few years.

The goal of this new plan is to connect every student with the community and empower them to succeed.

It started with a survey at the beginning of 2016, where the district reached out to the community for feedback on what they would like to see, and they received an overwhelming response from about 2,000 people.

Kerry Delf, the communications director for the 4-J School District said the overall goal was to come up with a plan for how to allocate resources.

"There are only so many dollars to be spent and when making decisions about the school district budget and where some targeted investments can be made, what are the top priorities for those, and having that guided and drive by a consistent plan means that those decisions are consistent and targeted at best serving our students every year," Delf said.

The main goals of this project are to come up with multiple pathways to student success, improve overall connection with the community, create a diverse world-class workforce, and generate stable and sustainable stewardship.

At the meeting tonight, Superintendent Dr. Gustagvo Balderas will discuss the plan in detail and the efforts underway by the school district to meet the goals of that plan.

This meeting is taking place Tuesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Kennedy Middle School on Bailey Hill Road, and is open to all parents, students and staff.
