*McKenzie School District #68 serves approximately 215 students in grades K-12 in Blue River, Oregon on the picturesque McKenzie River. The district has strong and individualized instruction for our students. Our graduation rate is the highest in Lane County. Many students make the honor roll, and more than ever are enrolling in post-secondary institutions.

​​For over sixteen years, the McKenzie Education Foundation has been dedicated to enhancing the academic opportunities for McKenzie School District #68* students. In past years we have helped finance such things as online foreign language classes, musical instrument fees for needy students, grade and high school field trips, Salmon Watch, Advance Placement testing fees, supplemental curriculum materials and equipment. It is a start. We hope to do better, but we need your help.

The MEF Board is made up of unpaid volunteers who are passionate about making McKenzie a special place for students to learn.​
