    Future Projects - Long-Term Funding Plan

    The Long-Term Facilities Planning Task Force developed a list of projects to serve the growing student population and meet the district’s facilities needs through the year 2029-30. A subsequent Bond Advisory Committee helped the district develop a long-term plan to fund and implement those projects.

    The 2016 bond measure represents the most immediate needs. Three subsequent bond measures would fund the remainder of the projects identified by the Task Force.

    This funding plan is:

    • Comprehensive.
      • Addresses both short and long-term needs.
      • Addresses needs across the district, in all learning communities.
    • Responsible.
      • Addresses both overcrowding and aging facilities.
      • Reduces the district’s reliance on portable classrooms over time.
      • Meets the classroom needs created by all-day kindergarten and K-3 class size reduction.
    • Cost conscious.
      • Reduces building costs through the use of specific design principles.
      • Leverages the use of existing facilities for long-term needs.
    • Fiscally disciplined.
      • Maintains the 2015 tax rate over time.
      • Prioritizes construction projects to address growth over time.
