FULL BALLOT TEXT

The following is the full text ballot proposition presented to the voters by the Upland Unified School District on February 5, 2008.

“Upland Schools Repair and Upgrade Measure: To make all schoolscomparable and repair local schools by upgrading classrooms, libraries and technology, installing energy/water efficient improvements to reduce costs and conserve energy, qualifying for State matching funds, shall Upland Unified School District issue $103 million in bonds at legal interest rates to repair, construct, acquire and equip schools, sites, and facilities, appoint a Citizens’ Oversight Committee to monitor expenditures, conduct annual audits, with no money for administrators’ salaries?”

PROJECT LIST

In developing the list of school facilities to be funded by the bonds, the Board of Trustees of the Upland Unified School District (the “Board”) has evaluated the Districts urgent and critical facility needs, including safety and security issues, class size reduction, energy efficiency and information technology needs at all schools. In approving this Priority School Projects List, the Board of Trustees makes five important policy determinations:

(i) the District must install and upgrade security and emergency response systems at every school so that all students are safe; and
(ii) the District must improve heating, ventilation, and lighting systems to reduce utility costs and conserve energy; and
(iii) the District must maximize its resources through efficient facility and financial management and aggressively applying for State matching funds; and
(iv) the District must upgrade classroom and library wiring and electrical power in order to accommodate current and future technology needs and prepare students to compete in the 21st century; and
(v) all District students must have access to the same high-quality classrooms, science labs and school facilities, and every school must receive repairs and upgrades funded by the proposed bonds.

The following projects qualify to be funded with proceeds of the general obligation bonds to be authorized by this proposition. Greater detail concerning certain of these projects is included in the District’s Facility Needs Master Plan Site Detail dated October 10, 2007 which is on file at theDistrict and available for review by the public.

Listed building, repair and rehabilitation projects and upgrades will be completed as needed. Each project is assumed to include its share of furniture, equipment, architectural, engineering, and similar planning costs, program management, staff training expenses and a customary contingency for unforeseen design and construction costs. In addition to the listed repair and construction projects stated above, the Priority School Projects List also includes the acquisition of land and facilities, the payment of the costs of preparation of all facility planning, facility assessment reviews, environmental studies and construction documentation, and temporary housing of dislocated District activities caused by bond projects. The allocation of bond proceeds will be affected by the District’s receipt of State matching funds and the final costs of each project. In the absence of State matching funds, which the District will aggressively pursue to reduce the District’s share of the costs of the projects, the District may not be able to complete some of the projects listed above. Certain projects may be undertaken as joint use projects in cooperation with other local public agencies or nonprofit entities. The budget for each project is an estimate and may be affected by factors beyond the District’s control. The final cost of each project will be determined as plans are finalized, construction bids are awarded and projects are completed. Based on the final costs of each project, certain of the projects described above may be delayed or may not be completed. Demolition of existing facilities and reconstruction of facilities scheduled for repair and upgrade may occur, if the Board determines that such an approach would be more cost-effective in creating more enhanced and operationally efficient campuses. Necessary site preparation/restoration may occur in connection with new construction, renovation or remodeling, or installation or removal of relocatable classrooms, including ingress and egress, removing, replacing, or installing irrigation, utility lines, trees and landscaping, redirecting fire access, and acquiring any necessary easements, licenses, or rights of way to the property. Bond proceeds shall only be expended for the specific purposes identified herein. The District shall create an account into which proceeds of the bonds shall be deposited and comply with the reporting requirements of Government Code § 53410.

Approval of Measure K does not guarantee that the proposed project or projects in the District that are the subject of bonds under Measure K will be funded beyond the local revenues generated by Measure K. The District’s proposal for the project or projects may assume the receipt of matching state funds with respect to the Upland High School Gymnasium and Classroom Project, which could be subject to appropriation by the Legislature or approval of a statewide bond measure.
