General Obligation Bond Facilities Updates

Potential 2024 General Obligation Bond
Planning for the Future
On August 9, 2023, the San Jacinto USD Board of Trustees adopted a new Facilities Master Plan, the culmination of a two-year process to identify needs across our schools. It was determined that while SJUSD teachers continue to provide a high-quality education, many of our facilities are aging and in need of repair to meet current education and safety standards. Additionally, most schools are over capacity.
On September 13, 2023, The San Jacinto USD Board of Trustees meeting included a presentation regarding the possible recommendation for a $73 million General Obligation bond measure for the 2024 ballot. While no decisions have been made, the cost of the measure would be limited to $60 per $100,000, annually, of assessed (not market) value, or about $150 per year for the typical homeowner, while bonds are outstanding.

Funds from the potential measure could be used to:
  • Improve student safety and campus security systems, including security lighting, cameras, emergency communication systems, smoke detectors, fire alarms and sprinklers
  • Upgrade older classrooms and science labs to keep pace with technology and support student achievement in math, science and engineering
  • Build classrooms and schools to relieve overcrowding at existing schools
  • Repair or replace deteriorating roofs, plumbing, sewer and electrical systems

Measure Y at Work -- the San Jacinto Difference!
The modernization projects included new HVAC unit upgrades, restroom remodeling, interior/exterior paint, signage, lighting, fire alarm upgrades and other miscellaneous site work. The cost of the projects were a 60/40 split with the State of California due to the passage of Proposition 51. 

The project began with a Groundbreaking Ceremony on June 18, 2019 and ended with a celebratory Ribbon Cutting on July 30, 2021. The district was obtained a 50% match for the construction of the school from available Proposition 51 funds.
