July 30, 2012 After conducting an extensive Facility Survey and the development of a Sustainable Facilities Master Plan, the SCUSD Board of Trustees unanimously voted to put two bond measures on the November ballot to upgrade aging schools, including district facilities occupied by charter schools.

The first measure of $68 million in bonds, would improve playgrounds, physical education facilities, remove hazardous materials such as lead paint and asbestos, and modernize kitchen facilities. The second bond measure of $336 million would upgrade and modernize science labs, computer systems, HVAC systems, roofs, walkways and restrooms.

Sacramento Charter High School was the only charter school specifically named on the bonds project list; however, all district school facilities will receive upgrades if the bond measures are approved by voters.
