Looking for ways to raise revenues in cash-strapped times, the board is looking at the viability of placing a bond measure on the June 5 ballot.
As with other bond measures, this ballot initiative would need a majority approval by voters and would be used for facility upgrades;. According to the Contra Costa Times, the board met in November and came up with a $238 million wish list of school building improvements. They include: modernizing six elementary schools, reonovating Stone Valley Middle School, and upgrading the science building at California High School.
At Tuesday's meeting, the Times reported, the school board unanimously approved Superintendent Steve Enoch's proposal for trustees to set up an exploratory committee to survey the community, make a list of potential projects and determine whether the bond measure would succeed at the polls.
