The school board has set an ambitious goal: By 2020–21, 100 percent of Eugene students will earn a diploma within five years. 4J's high schools already have graduation rates well above the average for Oregon, but we’re committed to helping all students succeed.

After years of budget cuts, reaching that goal will be a challenge. Our schools have fewer teachers, fewer course sections and larger class sizes, making it harder for students to get the attention they need. At the same time, Oregon’s graduation requirements are increasing, so it takes more for students to earn a diploma.

4J is rising to the challenge. In our first steps, we’re ensuring all ninth-graders will have a full schedule in 2012–13. We’ve also added programs that help students who may be at risk of falling behind on graduation requirements, starting with the transition from middle school to high school.
