Measure G: Financing School Facilities for the World Ahead
On June 5, 2012, 67.58% of local voters passed Measure G, which generates funding to provide safe, efficient, and modern facilities for Mountain View Whisman School District students and staff. The approval percentage was the highest in Santa Clara County and the 4th highest of the 34 school bond measures in the State of California.
Measure G will generate up to $198 million to repair, upgrade and expand our local schools. Funds will be generated through the sale of general obligation bonds, which will be repaid through assessments on residential and commercial property located within the Mountain View Whisman School District. The annual cost to local property owners is limited to $30 per $100,000 of assessed property value.
All projects funded by the issuance of Measure G general obligation bonds will be subject to review both by the District’s Board of Trustees and by an independent citizens’ oversight committee. The District will also provide many public forums to present progress and seek input from community members, parents, and staff.
