Official Sources of Information
Impartial Analysis from Lloyd W. Pellman, County Counsel
Approval of Measure K would authorize the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District to incur up to $46,000,000 in bonded indebtedness.

Funds received from the sale of the bonds would be used for the acquisition and improvement of real property, including repairing roofs, upgrading fire alarms, replacing plumbing and sewer systems, upgrading electrical systems for technology, and renovating classrooms and restrooms. Annual audits, with oversight by an independent civilian's committee, will be conducted on expenditures.

The bonds would be issued and sold at an interest rate not to exceed the statutory maximum, and would be repaid over a period not to exceed forty (40) years 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 K does not guarantee that the proposed project or projects in the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District that are the subject of bonds under Measure K will be funded beyond the local revenues generated by Measure K. 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.
