The California Constitution provides that school districts may issue general obligation bonds for the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities or the acquisition or lease of real property for school facilities, with the approval of 55% of the voters of the district, voting at an election for that purpose. The measure provides that funds received from the sale of the bonds shall be expended only on the specific high school improvement projects listed in the measure, including upgrading and constructing career technical education facilities, visual and performing arts facilities and science labs; upgrading classrooms, libraries, kitchens, cafeterias and administrative and support facilities; upgrading and constructing aquatics facilities, gymnasiums, tracks, sports fields, tennis courts and baseball/softball fields; upgrading network infrastructure; upgrading roofing; upgrading HVAC, plumbing, electrical and lighting systems; improving disability access; improving energy efficiency; upgrading security and safety systems; and upgrading landscaping and hardscapes. The measure provides that a citizens' oversight committee will be established to ensure that bond proceeds are properly expended.
In addition, annual performance and financial audits will be conducted. The measure further provides that bond proceeds will not be used for teacher or administrator salaries or other school operating expenses.
Approval of this measure will also authorize the District to levy an ad valorem tax on the assessed value of real property within the District by an amount needed to pay the principal and interest on these bonds in each year that the bonds are outstanding. The Tax Rate Statement for the measure in this sample ballot pamphlet reflects the District's best estimates, based upon currently available data and projections, of the property tax rates required to service the bonds.
If 55% of the voters of the District voting on the measure vote yes, the District will be authorized to issue bonds in an amount not to exceed $175,000,000 and levy the related taxes as estimated in the Tax Rate Statement.
A no vote on this measure will disapprove the issuance of the bonds and the levy of the taxes for such bonded indebtedness. The measure was placed on the ballot by the Board of Trustees of the District.
Approval of Measure I does not guarantee that the proposed project or projects in the District that are the subject of bonds under Measure I will be funded beyond the local revenues generated by Measure I. The 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.
