School Schedules/Horarios Escolares

Community Forum on School Schedules

Eugene School District 4J is changing to have a standard schedule and consistent calendar for all schools in 2018–19. This will provide consistent, predictable schedules for families, increase learning time for most students, and ensure that all schools meet state standards for adequate instructional time.

The district wants to hear from community members about their views on school schedules and what various schedule changes would mean for them.

Starting this fall, all schools at each level will have the same calendar, without extra no-school days or half-days at individual schools. The calendars also are more similar between elementary, middle and high schools, with nearly the same no-school days at all school levels.

The daily and weekly schedule of school start and end times is under discussion now and will be decided this spring. A draft schedule has been published for discussion and feedback. This is not the final schedule; schedule decisions have not been made yet. Whatever final schedule is decided, it will require some bell schedule adjustments at every school.

Parents, students, staff and community members are invited to learn more about the draft schedules under discussion and talk with school board members at a community forum.

The community forum on school schedules will be held on Wednesday, April 18, 5:30–6:30 p.m., at the 4J Education Center, 200 N. Monroe St. Spanish interpretation will be provided.

Foro comunitario sobre horarios escolares

El distrito escolar de Eugene 4J está cambiando a un horario estándar y a un calendario consistente para todas las escuelas en el año escolar 2018–19. Esto proporcionará horarios coherentes y predecibles para las familias, aumentará el tiempo de aprendizaje para la mayoría de los estudiantes y asegurará que todas las escuelas cumplan con los estándares estatales para proporcionar el tiempo de instrucción adecuado.

Al distrito le gustaría escuchar de los miembros de la comunidad su opinión acerca de los horarios escolares y lo que los diferentes cambios de horario significarían para ellos.

A partir de este otoño, todas las escuelas a cada nivel tendrán el mismo calendario. No habrá días adicionales en que no vaya a haber clases, ni habrá medios días tampoco. También habrá mas similitud en los calendarios de las escuelas primarias, secundarias y preparatorias, con casi los mismos días de no-escuela en todos los niveles.

Los horarios del comienzo y final del día escolar están siendo considerados y se decidirán en esta primavera. Un borrador del horario ha sido publicado para que el publico pueda dar su opinión. Este no es el horario fijo. Cualquiera que sea la decisión del horario fijo esto requerirá algunos ajustes de cuando suene la campana en cada una de las escuelas.

Se invita a los padres, estudiantes, miembros del personal y de la comunidad a un foro comunitario donde podrán enterarse mas sobre los horarios que se están considerando y hablar con los miembros de la junta directiva escolar. Se proveerá interpretación en español.

El foro se llevara a cabo el miércoles, 18 de abril de 5:30 a 6:30 p.m., en el Centro Educativo de 4J, ubicado en el 200 N. Monroe St.

The Graduation Checklist

The Graduation Checklist is now posted on the graduation website at www.chs.lane.edu/graduation and in the front office, or click HERE. The counselors are busy making schedule corrections for Term 3 and processing Term 2 grades. The “Number of Credits” column will be updated as they confirm graduation eligibility for all seniors and early graduates. Some students may not see a change in this column until after midterm grades.

How to Use the Graduation Checklist

How to Use the Graduation Checklist
To protect student privacy, the checklist is published with student numbers, rather than names. You can find your student number on your most recent report card. In ParentVUE or StudentVUE, go to the Report Card tab and click the link that says “Click here to view report card […].”

A check mark means that your requirements for that column are complete. Incomplete requirements will have a note indicating who can help you finalize that requirement.

Graduation Performer Auditions

Audition sign-ups and rules are now posted in the front office. Any senior who wishes to perform or give a speech at graduation must audition.

  • Performers must be cleared to graduate.
  • Audition material must be three minutes or less.
  • Audition material must be school-appropriate.
  • Performers must be performance-ready at the audition. This means memorized or with note cards and you should bring your accompanist, props, or other special equipment with you to the audition.
  • Bring three copies of your speech, poem, music, script, etc. to give to the judges.
  • Up to two friends will be allowed into the auditorium during your audition.
