Bond Overview


On November 8, 2016, our community passed two bonds for school facilities with a "yes" supermajorityMeasure A for middle & high schools with 75.8%, Measure B for elementary with 79.5%. Proposition 39 allows the District to sell $140,000,000 (A) & $68,000,000 (B) through a series of bond sales, the first of which was successfully sold on February 23, 2017.
