The District continues to have important school facility improvement needs and the District needs to identify a funding source.  March 3, 2020 is the date of the statewide primary election, and also is an election date at which local bond measures that provide facilities funding can be placed on the ballot.  In order to appear on the March 2020 ballot, adopted Resolutions Calling Bond Elections must be filed with the County Elections office by no later than 88 days prior to the election date, by December 6, 2019.

The Resolution for Board consideration has been prepared in accordance with all legal requirements and presents a $30 million bond measure to District voters under Prop. 39 (55% vote) for the purpose of financing projects summarized on the specific Project List attached as Appendix A to the Resolution (Full Text of Measure) which will be printed in the Sample Ballot provided to District voters.  Appendix B is the abbreviated statement of the measure and is limited to 75 words or less that will be printed on the ballot label and read by voters at the time of casting their vote. Appendix C  presents the Tax Rate Statement which will also be printed in the Sample Ballot which discloses to District voters current expectations regarding the property tax rates and other matters that will apply if bonds are approved and issued.

In order to call the election, the Resolution must have a super-majority vote of the Board (4 yes votes).
