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- Replace outdated heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems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
- Make health, safety and handicapped accessibility improvements
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.
