Official Sources of Information
Impartial Analysis from Lloyd W. Pellman, County Counsel
Approval of Measure R would authorize the Rowland Unified School District to issue $70,000,000 in general obligation bonds.

Funds received from the sale of the bonds would be used for the acquisition and improvement of real property, including repairing and upgrading schools, bringing school buildings into compliance with earthquake, building safety and health codes, acquiring and constructing classrooms and school facilities, installing wiring for technology in classrooms and libraries, repairing and upgrading plumbing, adding restrooms, installing fire alarms, constructing science laboratories, and making the District eligible for $50,000,000 in state grants. Annual audits will be conducted on expenditures, and proceeds will not be expended on salaries or other school operating expenses.

The bonds would be issued and sold at an interest rate not to exceed the legal maximum, and would be repaid by a property tax levied upon real property located within the District.

This measure requires a two-thirds (2/3) vote for passage.

Notice to Voters: Approval of Measure R does not guarantee that the proposed project or projects in the Rowland Unified School District that are the subject of bonds under Measure R will be funded beyond the local revenues generated by Measure R. The school district's proposal for the project or projects may assume the receipt of matching state funds, which could be subject to appropriation by the Legislature or approval of a statewide bond measure.
