Measure J1 Bond
On November 8, 2016, the J1 bond measure was passed by voters in San Leandro, which will issue $104,000,000 in bonds for facilities maintenance in the San Leandro Unified School District.
Funds raised through the bond will support student learning through technology upgrades and facility enhancements. All work will occur in three phases over the course of the next nine years, with Phase One beginning in Summer 2017.
Specifically, the plan will address the following:
“We are committed to ensuring our students are learning in environments that are safe and supportive. The bond measure will provide our schools the necessary funds to achieve this goal. Many of our current facilities are not adequate to facilitate 21st century teaching and learning and our students and teachers deserve better.”--- SLUSD Superintendent Mike McLaughlin, Ed.D.
