  • BONDS & Facilities OVERVIEW

    There are no records to display.

  • Measure H passed with 66.7% yes votes in November 2010. 

    Measure H installed solar panels in our schools, helping us save an estimated $1 million a year in the first five years, with savings continuing far into the future.  These dollars are then free to be used for core classroom instruction.

    Measure H also provided funds to update and improve career technical education classrooms and upgrade technology in our schools.

    Measure H was structured to extend - but not increase - the current assessment of approximately $50 per $100,000 of assessed value that voters in our District were already paying to support their local schools.

  • The Measure E bond passed in November 2016. This bond measure will 

    generate $120 million in locally controlled funding to repair and update classrooms and school facilities,

    and provide the instructional technology critical to a modern education.

    The measure will:

    • Repair or replace leaky roofs
    • Improve student access to computers and modern technology
    • Repair or replace deteriorating plumbing and sewer systems
    • Replace outdated heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems
    • Make energy efficiency improvements
    • Improve physical education facilities for student safety
    • Modernize and construct classrooms, restrooms and school facilities

  • BONDS FAQ

    Are there any exemptions for senior citizens?

    No one is excluded or waived from paying General Obligation Bond taxes, including senior citizens. If a senior citizen states they are waived from other taxes, they are referring to Direct Charges or Parcel Taxes. These taxes are different from General Obligation Bonds.
