Vallecito Union School District Measure I Info.

Vallecito, CA... As we approach election day, I would like to share some facts regarding Measure I with our school community. The funds generated by the passage of Measure I are very important in completing the much-needed facilities renovation that we have undertaken with Measure E funds. Although Measure I is a small Bond the funds it will generate are incredibly important to both our instructional program and the ongoing maintenance of our school facilities. Funds from Measure I will provide renovation of our Avery Track and Field plus needed paint for all schools and some small improvements to our two elementary schools. In addition, Measure I will help generate additional state matching funds that we can use for ongoing school improvement and maintenance.

Here are some additional facts regarding Measure I:

1. The Avery Track and Field is a heavily used facility that supports the school’s PE and athletic program. In addition, this facility is used daily by the community for recreation and exercise.
2. Measure I will provide benefit to all three district schools and generate additional state matching funds through the state’s facilities program thus bring local tax dollars back to our community.
3. The cost of Measure I is approximately $7.00 per $100,000 of assessed value of your property. Thus, a home assessed at $200,000 would cost each homeowner $14.00 annually on their property tax bill.
4. When we first advertised for Measure E we asked each property owner to commit to no more the $30.00 annually of property tax which is the amount they have been previously paying with bonds that are soon to expire. The actual cost of Measure E , because of unusually low interest rates, came in significantly under the $30.00 annual cost. The addition of Measure I keeps us at the $30.00 promise.

I would again like to thank everyone for their ongoing support of our kids, our teachers and our school district. I feel blessed to live in a place with such a strong sense of community.

Jim Frost

Trump supports are reading this and are really confused that Trump isn’t the only measure on the 2020 election.

    Good luck, this is the time that ten's of millions of Conservatives and Independents start to vote. Unlike the dummies who vote even before one debate. Then they ask Google, 'can I change my vote?"
    The Right and Independents always wait until November, this is the reason why the left are getting worried. This is the reason all the big cities are boarding up businesses, it's not because of the Right, it's because the cult of the democrat party are violent criminals, and they're dumb enough to destroy their own cities, their stores, after they loot them of course.

measure I
Posted on: 2020-11-02 07:36:00   By: Anonymous
enrollment in the 3 schools is going down. Avery school is in part not used, many classrooms are empty or maybe one person working on a computer all day. This is a big school and can handle more students. The district needs to clean up before they start asking money to fix things. They should close HF and move those kids to Avery make it a K-8, this makes since you would only need one principal and maybe a PT VP. Saving the district money. This area does not need 3 schools, the board needs to make some hard decisions, not ask for money again to fix schools that are not totally utilized. Close HF then think about repairs to the other schools. This is the right decision but a hard one. We continue to throw money at schools because it is for the kids, but here we need to take different actions.

    Agree with the above statement, reassess the needs for the school -- the plea from Superintendent Jim Frost isn't moving me. I have to vote against the Bond.
