Measure D, passed by local voters in 2012 with a qualified majority of over 55%, is a $ 260 million bond measure aimed at supporting infrastructure and facilities for schools in the district. It falls under the category of laws requiring independent committee oversight under Proposition 39, as the qualified majority threshold was 55% instead of 66%.
The district completed its third and final Measure D bond sale in 2018, generating an additional $ 60 million in cash income to fund maintenance and upgrades to facilities.
So far, the revenue from Measure D bonds has been used for a variety of projects, including upgrades to technology and security infrastructure across many campuses, ADA compliance upgrades, and a three-story building and 52 classrooms which was opened at San Ramon Valley High School in 2019.
The committee met twice in the fall, in September and in November. At the September meeting, they discussed a number of Measure D projects under design and construction, as well as installation projects funded by other means. They were due to hear and discuss OFAC’s annual report for 2020 at the November meeting.
The FOAC must be made up of at least seven volunteer members, appointed by the school board, who serve two-year terms and cannot serve more than three consecutive terms.
The next FOAC meeting is set for January 25, after the deadline for new committee candidates on January 22. More information about the FOAC and the application is available here.
