Superintendent Booker Reports on Passage of School Bond Measure Emphasizing Opportunities for Input

After an immense campaign by our community members, I’m thrilled to report that Measure H1 passed with over 73% voting “yes”!

I want to thank our community of educators and families for participating in our Facilities Master Planning process and for all of their words of encouragement over the past year.  I’m looking to forward to the work ahead and am eager for continued engagement with educators, students, families, and community members.  There will be many opportunities in the months ahead for input and discussion as we take the necessary steps to address the priorities outlined in the master planning process.

Communication about the bond projects will be a priority.  As we develop and implement a number of communication strategies to help keep our educators, students, and the community informed at each phase of the projects, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.

For more information, please visit the Measure H1 Timeline and Oversight Committee Memo to the Board from October 26th to learn more about the specific steps the District will take to go from master plan to shovels in the ground.Lastly, with Proposition 51 passing, PUSD is eligible for an additional $4.8M to $6.4M in state matching funds for construction performed at Piedmont High School, Piedmont Middle School, and Millennium High School.Again, thank you for your support.  I look forward to our next steps in providing our students and staff with facilities that reinforce our incredible educational programs!
