EUGENE, Ore. -- The 4J School Board held a work session Monday night, to talk about behavior issues in the classroom.

Kerry Delf, the Spokesperson for the district, said behavioral issues are on the rise not only in Eugene, but across the U.S.

"There seems to be a wide spread issue with a number of frequency of behavioral needs increasing and also the intensity of those behavioral needs," said Delf. 

She said over the years, they've seen more students coming to school with emotional behavior difficulties. Delf said that can disrupt the classroom and a child's learning.

"Students come to school with all sorts of needs, academic needs, social and emotional needs, behavioral needs, and public schools need to serve all of the students who come through the doors," said Delf.
