School board to consider moving Charlemagne to old Parker Elementary

The Eugene School Board will vote Wednesday on whether to move the Charlemagne French immersion program at Fox Hollow Elementary School to the old Parker school building because Fox Hollow isn’t big enough for full-day kindergarten, which begins next year. This move would have a huge impact on the neighbors in the area surrounding the old Parker Elementary.

If the board votes to keep the school at its current location, the cheapest option would be to divide an existing portable building into two small classrooms, which is estimated to cost $10,000 to $15,000. Other alternatives include building a new one- or two-classroom portable building at the Fox Hollow site, which could cost $250,000 to $500,000. Or the board could decide to construct a permanent addition to the school, for $1.5 million.
