The Governing Board called the School Improvement Bond Election because of the need to ensure facilities to support college and career educational programs and growth in the District’s student population which has led to a need for new school facilities.
TVUSD is an A-Rated district, with Tanque Verde High School, established in 2005, consistently achieving top scores in state and national rankings. In the 15 years since the high school’s inception, the community has supported the building of a new stand-alone junior high school facility and all four district schools have seen significant growth and success. To continue to provide the level of educational excellence exemplified by TVUSD schools, and to meet today’s standards, school facilities upgrades are vitally important.
Specifically, it is the intent of the Governing Board to apply proceeds from the sale of the Bonds to the following:
• Supplement new construction of additional classroom space at the high school, junior high school and elementary schools;
• Technology updates; and
In order to provide safe and optimal learning environments for all students, the Governing Board
considers it imperative that the District begin construction of these new additions to our school
The Governing Board takes fiscal responsibility very seriously. To that end, the District has, and will continue to, work hard to obtain all funds available from the State (including through the State School Facilities Board) to help with the District’s facilities needs. The funds from this bond election will be used to supplement the funds already obtained from the State School Facilities Board. While the State monies help address certain of the District’s facilities needs, it is the opinion of the Governing Board that the current State funding formula alone is not sufficient to build schools that match the needs of the students of the District.
