Thank you for investing in the future of our students, our schools and our community!
Measure D passed with 72% approval in November 2014. The $177 million bond addresses long-standing facility, technology, and infrastructure needs throughout the District, particularly at San Luis Obispo High School and Morro Bay High School. Measure D will transform our campuses and create inspiring learning environments where our students will thrive.
Over the past 7 years, the district has been able to supplement the bond funds through state grants, deferred maintenance funds, interest earned on bond funds, and developer’s fees to expand the revenues available to complete projects. We have turned that $177 million into over $200 million with our efforts.
The cost of construction (labor and supplies) has risen dramatically over the past 7 years, but we plan on completing most of the projects at Morro Bay High and San Luis Obispo High School that we had envisioned.
We have a Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC), who meets quarterly to review the budget and completion of Measure D projects. Most of our members have been here throughout the bond measure construction.
While most of the bond funds were prioritized to modernize the two comprehensive high schools, we have also made many upgrades throughout the district.
Our community has entrusted us to spend Measure D funds wisely and as promised on facilities improvements. We understand our role as stewards of your resources and trust. We are committed to a transparent bond management process and will continue to demonstrate that your trust is well-placed.
Eric Prater, Ed.D., Superintendent
