PARENT – TEACHER CONFERENCES
Roosevelt Parent-Teacher Conferences are coming soon – Monday, November 10 and Thursday, November 13. By now you should have received your conference request form from your student. In case you did not, a copy is attached and can also be found on the Roosevelt website. Scheduling will be done on a first come, first served basis. Due to high demand, it is not possible to schedule all requests. Therefore, if you don’t have concerns, you may choose not to participate. Please remember, conferences are an ongoing process. Parents are always welcome to contact teachers at any point during the school year. Although our resources are limited, our desire to communicate is not.

4J LOCAL OPTION LEVY
Information About Measure 20-222: 4J Local Option Levy Renewal
Measure 20-222 on the November 4 election ballot asks voters in our school district whether to renew local funding for schools at the same property tax rate. The 4J local option levy funds school operations, such as teachers, programs and school days. It provides about $8 million per year, paying for the equivalent of about 16 school days or 80 teaching positions. It is not a new tax or a tax increase, but a five-year renewal of the local option levy that has been providing additional local funding for 4J schools since 2000. To vote on the local option levy, 4J residents must be registered to vote by October 14. To learn more, go to www.4j.lane.edu/levy.
Información sobre la propuesta de ley 20-222: Renovación de la opción fiscal local (“local option levy”) para el Distrito Escolar de Eugene 4J
La Propuesta de Ley 20-222 en la boleta electoral del 4 de noviembre pide a los votantes en nuestro distrito escolar sobre la posibilidad de renovar el financiamiento local para las escuelas con la misma tasa de impuestos de propiedad. La opción fiscal local paga las operaciones escolares, que incluyen los maestros, programas escolares, y días de clase. Se proporciona aproximadamente $8 millones al año, lo cual equivale a 16 días de clases o 80 puestos de trabajo para maestros. No es un impuesto nuevo ni un aumento de impuestos. Es una renovación por cinco años del tributo local que ha proporcionado fondos locales adicionales para las escuelas desde el año 2000. Para poder votar en la opción fiscal local, residentes del distrito deben estar registrados para votar a más tardar el 14 de octubre. Para mayor información, por favor visite www.4j.lane.edu/levy.
