Completing School Upgrades for Student Success
To repair and upgrade our schools to provide the education local students need to be competitive in our modern world, the Campbell Union School District Governing Board voted unanimously on June 23 to place a $72 million bond measure on the November 2016 ballot.
Although some schools have been recently upgraded, many of our schools are still in need of upgrades and repairs. Addressing identified repair needs in local schools — many of which were built in the 1950s — would help ensure that classrooms and labs are safe and up to date at all of our schools.
A bond measure could provide locally controlled funding to address identified facility needs in our schools, including:
• Fixing or replacing leaky roofs that are over 30 years old
• Building modern science, technology, engineering, art and math classrooms
• Upgrading aging plumbing, gas and sewer lines that are over 50 years old
• Replacing inefficient and failing heating and cooling systems
• Upgrading old and inefficient wiring and electrical systems
