Bond Measures & Parcel Taxes

Bond Projects

Major renovations at nearly every district facility were performed under bond projects from 2002-2006. Under the oversight of the Board of Education and the district, the $100 million expended continues to serve every elementary and secondary student. The bond measures, E and H, generated $85 million. In addition $28 million in state matching funds and $15 million in District funds were allocated to the modernization projects.  A Bond Oversight Committee provided oversight of all bond projects.
