Aromas-San Juan Unified School District Bond

To qualify for State matching funds, expand vocational education classrooms, upgrade electrical wiring, plumbing and restrooms and to construct, acquire, modernize and equip classrooms, buildings and sites, shall Aromas-San Juan Unified School District issue $ 11,200,000 of bonds at legal interest rates, appoint a Citizen's Oversight Committee to perform annual audits and ensure that no bond money is used for salaries or other operating expenses?

The Board of Trustees of the Aromas-San Juan Unified School District has evaluated safety, class size reduction, and information technology needs in developing the list of school facility projects to be funded, as outlined in the District's Facilities Assessment, on file in the District Office, including the following projects at the estimated costs shown:

Projects Estimated Cost
Aromas School: Modernization of classrooms, including electrical system upgrades and communication systems to enhance safety of students; repair student bathrooms; ADA compliance renovations; improve parking and driveway conditions; construct gymnasium; campus site improvements $4,164,400
San Juan School: Modernization of classrooms, including electrical system upgrades and communication systems to enhance safety of students; repair student bathrooms; ADA compliance renovations; improve parking and driveway conditions; campus site improvements; construct kindergarten addition $2,545,600
Anzar High School: Construct new vocational education classrooms $840,000
School District: Relocate from San Juan School and construct bus/maintenance facility; enhance and support all present and future educational programs by retiring a portion of/refinancing Anzar construction lease/purchase agreement $3,650,000

The allocation of bond proceeds will be affected by the District's ongoing collection of developer fees, the receipt of State matching funds and the final costs of each project. The budget for each project is an estimate and may be affected by factors beyond the District's control. The District will apply any surplus bond money to priority projects identified in the Facilities Assessment.
