EL CENTRO, Calif. – Residents in El Centro will soon be able to vote on Measure K on the June 2016 ballot.
The measure would provide $30 million dollars in local funds to repair and upgrade local neighborhood schools. Funds from the bond would be affecting four different school campuses including Central Union High School, Southwest High School, Desert Oasis High School and Central Union Adult School.
Craig Lyon, Central Union High School Principal informed us that money would be used to ensure that classroom meet California earthquake standards and that school drinking water continues to be safe. Repairs would also focus on restroom and out dated buildings that are over 100 years old. The bond would cost taxpayers $30 per $100,000 of assessed property value but is not to exceed $30 million dollars.
Renato Montano, Superintendent says, “Ultimately what we want is for our students to be better prepared for college and career. So we’re hopeful that our community will support Measure K and help us improve our learning environment so that students are better prepared.”
Election Day is June 7, 2016. The last day to register to vote is May 23, 2016. For more information on Measure K you can visit www.cuhsd.net.
