Dear Eugene 4J Parents & Guardians,

Survey in English / Encuesta en inglés
Esta encuesta también está disponible en español: ///SPANISH SURVEY LINK///

Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete this survey. Your feedback will be used to inform our efforts to continually improve our district, our schools, and our partnership with parents to help students succeed.

If you have more than one student attending school in Eugene School District 4J and have had a different experience for different students, please fill out a separate survey for each student. That provides the schools with information specific to each student’s individual educational experience.

If you have questions or input regarding this survey, please call the Instruction Department at 541-790-7550.  Once again, thank you for your time and input.
