BOND MEASURE HISTORY
-- In 2008, due to cuts in state funding for education, the district made multi-million dollar cuts in its budget.
-- In November 2011, trustees began talks on the need for bond funding and creating priorities for projects.
-- Beginning in January, community forums were held at each high school to gather community ideas on what needs repair, renovation or restoration.
-- Aug. 7, the board unanimously agreed to place a $260 million bond measure on the November 2012 ballot.
