Shall Jurupa Unified School District upgrade career training and instructional technology, improve vocational facilities, science and computer labs for modern careers and skilled trades, improve school safety and security, repair aging classrooms, roofs, restrooms and electrical systems, by issuing $144 million of bonds, at legal interest rates, with annual financial audits, independent citizens' oversight, with all funds staying local and no money for administrators' salaries or pensions?"
This Measure was placed on the ballot by the Board of the above- identified District.
The Bonds would be used by the District to upgrade career training and instructional technology, improve school facilities, including science and computer labs, improve school safety and security, repair classroom facilities, including roofs, restrooms and electrical infrastructure. The Bonds would not be used to fund the salaries, pensions or benefits of any board members, administrator, and/or teachers or for other school operating expenses.
If Measure "EE" is approved, the Board of the District will appoint a citizens' oversight committee and conduct annual independent audits to assure that bond funds are spent only on 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, and for no other purposes.
An ad valorem tax would be levied and collected on property within the boundaries of the District to pay the principal and interest on the Bonds.
The Resolution provides that the maximum interest rate on the Bonds will not exceed the maximum interest rate permitted by the applicable laws of the State and the maximum term of the Bonds, or any series thereof, will not exceed 40 years.
For this Measure to be approved fifty-five percent (55%) of qualified voters who vote on the Measure must vote yes.
A "YES" vote on Measure "EE" is a vote to allow the District to sell the Bonds and levy the necessary taxes to pay for the Bonds.
A "NO" vote on Measure "EE" is a vote against allowing the District to sell the Bonds and levy the necessary taxes to pay for the Bonds.

|Tax Rate Statement from Superintendent of Schools|
|An election will be held in Jurupa Unified School District (the "District") on November 4, 2014, for the purpose of submitting to the electors of the District the question of incurring a bonded indebtedness of the District in the principal amount of $144,000,000. If such bonds are authorized and sold, the principal thereof and interest thereon will be payable from the proceeds of taxes levied on the taxable property in the District. The following information regarding tax rates is given in compliance with Section 9401 of the California Elections Code. This information is based upon the best estimates and projections presently available from official sources, upon experience within the District and other demonstrable factors.
Based upon the foregoing and projections of the assessed valuations of taxable property in the District, and assuming the entire debt service on the bonds will be paid through property taxation:
1. The best estimate from official sources of the tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund the bond issue during the first fiscal year after the first sale of the bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of the filing of this statement, is $52.75 per $100,000 of assessed valuation of all property to be taxed for the year 2015-16.
2. The best estimate from official sources of the tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund the bond issue during the first fiscal year after the last sale of the bonds and an estimate of the year in which that rate will apply, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of the filing of this statement, is $52.75 per $100,000 of assessed valuation of all property to be taxed and the year 2023-24.
3. The best estimate from official sources of the highest tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund the bond issue and an estimate of the year in which that rate will apply, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of the filing of this statement, is $52.75 per $100,000 of assessed valuation of all property to be taxed and the year 2039-40.
Attention of voters is directed to the fact that the foregoing information is based upon projections and estimates. The actual timing of sales of the bonds and the amount to be sold at any time will be governed by the needs of the District and other factors. The actual interest rates at which the bonds will be sold, which will not exceed the maximum permitted by law, will depend upon the bond market at the time of sale. The actual assessed valuations in future years will depend upon the value of property within the District as determined in the assessment and the equalization process. Assessed valuation is not the same as market price of real property. Therefore, the actual tax rates and the years in which those tax rates will be applicable may vary from those presently estimated and stated above.
