The Board of Education unanimously approved a measure for this November's ballot asking for voter authorization to issue $350 million in bonds to support modernization of classrooms, provide technology infrastructure and replace deteriorating portables with permanent classrooms. 

THE NEED: 
  • Most San Juan Unified schools are more than 50 years old and in need of upgrades to provide adequate technology, science labs and modern classrooms. 

  • Deteriorating portables need to be replaced with permanent facilities and ease overcrowding at some schools. 

  • Aging heating, air conditioning and water systems must be upgraded to improve efficiency and save valuable funds that can directly support teaching and learning.

  • San Juan Unified needs to make these improvements now to be eligible for millions of dollars in additional federal, state and local matching funds.
WHAT CAN MEASURE N FUND: 
  • Repair and/or replacement of deteriorating portable classrooms with permanent modern classrooms.

  • Modernization of classrooms with current learning technology to support teaching and improve learning. 

  • Installation of other technology infrastructure to support classroom tools.

  • New, energy efficient, classrooms.

  • Renovation and construction of physical education and career tech facilities that provide needed job skills for students and our economy.

  • Repair and replacement of deteriorated roofs for improved energy efficiency and longevity.

  • Repair and renovation of bathrooms at campuses to continue providing healthy and safe facilities.

  • Installation of energy efficient equipment at schools to save on utility bills.

  • Repair and replacement of deteriorating underground sewer and water lines.

  • Improvements to ensure campus security during and after the school day. 

  • Repair and upgrades for safety alarms at schools to protect learning materials and the community's investment.
OVERSIGHT AND TAXPAYER DOLLAR PROTECTION: 
  •  A Citizen’s Oversight Committee consisting of at least seven members including a community business leader, senior citizens organization advocate, taxpayers’ organization member, parent/guardian of a student, and parent/guardian involved in parent-teacher organization will monitor bond expenditures.

  • An annual independent performance audit will be conducted and results published to ensure the proceeds are expended properly and prudently.
