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.
