Our school district is committed to providing students with an outstanding education that prepares them for college and future careers. Our dedicated teachers and rigorous academic programs help make our local schools in Alamo, Blackhawk, Danville, Diablo and San Ramon among the best in the state. We are proud of our students’ success!
Our School Facilities Need to Be Upgraded
Our classrooms and school facilities, however, need capital improvements to ensure that all students have access to up-to-date classrooms and quality learning environments. We need additional classrooms to better ensure that children can continue to attend their neighborhood schools. Updated science labs and technology infrastructure are needed to support 21st-century teaching and learning. Fire, security, and earthquake safety system improvements are also needed. Thanks to the support of local voters, some of our schools have been upgraded over the years. Although some of our schools have been upgraded, others have not.
A Local Bond Measure To Upgrade Our Schools
To provide all of our students with a safe and up-to-date learning environment, the SRVUSD School Board voted unanimously to place Measure D, a $260 million local school bond measure, on the ballot this November. Measure D will upgrade our San Ramon Valley school facilities by extending but not increasing our voter-approved tax rates beyond what we were already scheduled to pay starting next year in 2013-14.
Measure D will provide locally-controlled funding to:
- Provide additional classrooms to better ensure that students can attend their neighborhood schools
- Update technology infrastructure for 21st-century teaching and learning
- Renovate aging science labs, classrooms and school facilities
- Upgrade fire, security, and earthquake safety systems
- Keep schools well-maintained and in good condition
- Bring all schools up to the same high facility standards
Fiscal accountability provisions are required:
- Every penny will support San Ramon Valley schools
- The State can’t take Measure D funds
- Independent citizens’ oversight is required
- No funds can be used for administrators’ salaries
- This measure qualifies our schools for state matching funds
Measure D will appear on the November 6, 2012 ballot. To pass, Measure D must be supported by 55% of those who vote.
