Building for the Future of Education with Quality School Facilities

Here in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District, we offer award-winning innovative programs designed to prepare students for success in the 21st-century, including Career Technical Education (CTE) pathways; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); extensive visual and performing arts programs; and rich foreign language and dual immersion offerings. We are the only district in Costa Contra County to offer the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) program. We also offer one of the region’s three middle college programs, College Now, allowing high school juniors and seniors to take college classes and earn college credits while meeting high school graduation requirements.

Supporting 21st-Century Instruction

Providing a 21st-century education requires up-to-date classrooms. This means additional technology upgrades so as students enter college or careers, they are proficient with technology programs. It means creating science and computer labs, and learning environments for our career technical education programs so they mirror the real workplace. And it means updated and more sophisticated safety measures.

Safety Upgrades and Repairs

Safe classrooms, campuses, and other school facilities are essential to a quality education. Needed improvements include upgrades to our emergency communications systems, and adding more security cameras, fire alarms, and lighting, especially near our fields. There are also important repairs and upgrades to be made at our schools to improve safety from an operations perspective, with updated plumbing and fixtures, and electrical wiring.

Measure J: Potential Upgrades to Our Schools

Recently, the MDUSD Board of Education approved a plan to complete a district-wide Facility Master Plan, which will provide a comprehensive assessment of all physical facility needs that the district can use to prioritize projects and apply resources accordingly. In order to make necessary repairs and upgrades, the MDUSD Board voted to place Measure J, a local bond measure, on the November 6, 2018 ballot. Measure J may provide $150 million to upgrade our schools and would cost approximately $15.00 per $100,000 of assessed, not market, value per year. All funds would support repairing and improving schools in our community.
