BOND AND CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT
The Mt. Diablo Unified School District’s (MDUSD) construction bond and capital improvement program is funded with various revenue sources.
Measure C - 2010: Measure C, a $348M General Obligation (GO) bond measure approved by voters in June 2010, is providing for improved science labs, career and technical education facilities, classroom instructional technology, and needed repair, replacement, and modernization of school facilities throughout the District. Measure C is also providing for improved energy efficiency with solar panels and upgraded heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. The bond has also provided for improved public safety and accessibility.
Measure C - 2002: The Measure C approved in May 2002 provided for $250M in GO bond funding for earlier improvements and repairs to school facilities, technology, and infrastructure. A Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) is in place to provide required oversight and reporting on the expenditures of these public funds.
Measure A - 1989: The District also receives funds from Measure A, a Mello-Roos parcel tax approved in 1989 and which authorized the District to sell up to $90 million in bonds to serve as an operating fund for school site furniture and equipment
Proposition 39: Proposition 39, the California Clean Energy Jobs Act approved in November 2012, allocates revenue to local education agencies to support high energy efficiency and alternative energy projects, along with related improvements and repairs that contribute to reduced operating costs and improved health and safety conditions in public schools.
Measure J: The “School Safety and Classroom Improvement Measure” - is a $150 million GO bond approved in November 2018. These funds will be used to improve student and campus safety and security measures; replace outdated electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems; and upgrade career tech and science, engineering, and technology classrooms and labs.
Bond Oversight: Laws governing the passage of local school construction measures require strict accountability and include the establishment of an independent citizens’ oversight committee charged with the task of informing the public on the expenditures and progress of bond revenues.
