what is Measure V bond?

On November 4, 2014, the citizens of West Sacramento voted to support the passage of Measure V. This ballot measure granted a $49million General Obligation Bond for the Washington Unified School District. A Citizens Oversight Committee will be established to monitor the District's utilization of the bond funds and report periodically to the Board of Education. Applications for the Oversight Committee were made available to the public in December, and a deadline for submission was set for January 12, 2015. Education Code 15282 stipulates that the Citizens Oversight Committee shall consist of at least seven(7) members who shall serve for a minimum of two years without compensation and for no more than three consecutive terms. While consisting of a minimum of at least seven members, the Citizens Oversight Committee shall be comprised as follows:
purpose & Goal 

purpose & Goal 

  • Safe and Secure Schools: Independent evaluations of West Sacramento schools show the need for upgrades and modifications to fencing, gates, doors, and emergency exits. A bond will ensure all our schools have the hardware required for maximum protection and evacuation of children in an emergency.  
  • Quality Learning Environments: Many West Sacramento schools are decades old and need significant repairs. Children cannot do their best if classrooms make them too hot, cold, or sick. A bond will help fund dramatic improvements to school facilities, including repairing and replacing heating and cooling systems, fixing broken windows and leaky roofs, and removing mold and dry rot. In addition, a bond will help ensure school buildings are up to current codes and access to disabled students.
  • Students Ready for College or a Career: We aim for every student to be ready for college or a career by graduation. A bond will allow for investment in the most up-to-date technology for students and classrooms, upgraded electrical systems to support high-speed WiFi, updated computer and science labs, and improved facilities for career technical education and vocational programs.
