San Ramon Valley Measure D School Bond Too Close to Call

The $260 million school bond aims to address overcrowding at campuses and improve school facilities and technology.

With all 113 precincts reporting, the $260 million school bond had 55.19 percent of the "yes" votes, just above the 55 percent needed for passage.

The results are unofficial, with provisional and some mail-in ballots still uncounted.

On Thursday, Contra Costa County Clerk Steve Weir estimated It's unknown how many of those are from the San Ramon Valley.

The exact vote count is currently 27,602 votes in favor of the measure and 22,410 against.

The bond is to pay for campus upgrades and improve technology in classrooms. In addition, the measure would address overcrowding issues at campuses in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.

Among the Measure D projects include:

  • Technology infrastructure improvements for 21st-century learning.
  • Additional classrooms/facilities to prevent overcrowding and better ensure that students can attend neighborhood schools.
  • Modernization of classrooms, science labs, facilities and sites to support instruction.
  • Energy efficiency and cost-saving improvements.
  • Fire, security and earthquake safety improvements.
  • Projects to keep schools/facilities/sites safe, clean and well-maintained.
