Bond Measure J

The Hope Elementary School District passed Measure J bond of $47.4 million dollars in March 2020. The district is beginning the launch of the Measure J bond program with the first projects going out to bid in April 2021. It will include new and modernization projects at our three elementary schools – Hope, Monte Vista, and Vieja Valley.

The first series of $12 million dollars was sold in May 2020 and received in June 2020 and deposited in fund 22. The district must spend 85% of those proceeds within three years. Staff predicts all $47.4 million proceeds will bill spent by 2025. Closing out the bond program requirements by June 2026.

Our first project, the modernization of the multi-purpose room at Vieja Valley. Is anticipated to go out to bid early April 2021.
