How will urban renewal impact the school district?

Schools get their funds on a “per pupil basis” from the State School Fund. Because of the ways funds are given to schools, urban renewal will not result in the school district getting less funds over the course of the Urban Renewal Plan. There is a positive benefit to the Eugene School District  4J local option levy as a result of having urban renewal in the community. Chapter 9 of the attached Report accompanying the Plan contains additional technical information regarding the estimated financial impact to 4J.
