The Eugene School District is engaging in a community conversation about improving the condition and design of our school buildings. 

Eugene’s school buildings are aging. Most are more than 50 years old. Many older buildings are costly to heat and maintain and aren’t well designed to support student learning. It’s time to prioritize these needs and update the long-range plan for the future of our schools.
