Proposition S Passes
Posted on 06/03/2020
I am excited to share that on June 2, our District voters approved Proposition S with 79.28 percent voting YES. I want to thank all of our staff members who helped share information about the importance of Prop S with our community and the volunteer members of our campaign committee for their dedication and enthusiasm during the entire process. I want to especially thank all of our voters who understood the current state of our facilities and the positive long-term impact Prop S funding would have on our students, our staff, and our schools. We are extremely grateful for this demonstration of community support, and we are anxious to move forward with the projects outlined in our Comprehensive Facilities Master Plan.
