Planning for the Future: Classrooms to Support 21st Century Learning
Board Adopts Resolution for Bond Measure With No Projected Tax Rate Increase
To ensure that its classrooms and labs support hands-on 21st Century learning and that repairs are made to aging and outdated facilities, the Campbell Union School District Governing Board has placed a local funding measure on the November 2022 ballot.
“Some of our schools are 50 to 60 years old and in urgent need of repairs and modernization,” said Board President Richard Nguyen. “This bond would enable us to complete some of the planned projects for our facilities that were impacted by increased construction costs.”
If approved by local voters, the measure would complete these projects without increasing current tax rates.
“The bond funds would allow us to continue providing safe and up-to-date schools that meet the learning needs of students and enhance local property values,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “Keeping our schools well-maintained requires long-term planning. For our students to be prepared to compete in high school, college and beyond, the District needs to ensure that its classrooms and labs are safe and have the infrastructure needed to prepare students for real-world opportunities.”
