Anaheim Elementary Board Approves Bond Measure for November Ballot
ANAHEIM, Calif. (August 9, 2016) – The Anaheim Elementary School District Board of Education voted unanimously tonight to place a $318 million facilities bond on the November 8 ballot to improve school buildings and facilities across the district.
“Our needs are great,” said AESD Superintendent Dr. Linda Kimble. “While we have made significant progress over the last 15 years, many of our facilities have received minimal updates and require substantial improvements to support high-quality instruction.”
The District recently evaluated urgent and critical facility needs, including the age of schools, student safety, overcrowding potential, class size reduction, computer and information technology, and drafted a Long-Range Facility Master Plan which outlines priorities.
If approved, the measure is estimated to cost property owners within the District $24 per $100,000 of assessed (not market) value per year.
