Solana Beach School District passed a general obligation bond measure in November 2016. Measure JJ, a $105,000,000 bond, is funding for school construction and modernization across district schools.Based on input from parents, community members, teachers, and district staff, and the completion of a Facilities Needs Assessment, the District has developed a Long-Range Facilities Master Plan. Funds from issuance of Measure JJ bonds will be used to implement the Master Plan.Cost for repayment of these bonds will be approximately $272 per year for the average homeowner in the District. In addition, a statewide school bond on the November ballot was passed by voters. As a result, the District may be eligible for an additional $20 million in matching funds from the state.
The District is committed to ensuring transparency in the use and expenditure of bond funds through the following:
- An Independent Citizen’s Oversight Committee will be formed
- The Board of Education and Citizen’s Oversight Committee will receive annual reports and audits.
- Bond revenue will not be used for teacher or administrator salaries.
- The term of the bonds will be limited to no more than 30 years.
- Capital Appreciation Bonds (CABs) will not be used.
- Fair and open competition for all construction projects will be promoted.
