Measure J Bond
The Hope Elementary School District Planning and Construction Management oversees new construction and modernization of all district facilities. The department is responsible for the district’s short and long-term facility needs, including enrollment and staffing projections to identify facility needs.
Through careful planning and support from the community, Hope Elementary School District has prepared well to accommodate the current needs of our students, staff, and community. In March 2020, the Hope School District community voters passed Measure J. This $47.4 million bond will provide funding for the modernization of our facilities, including new construction at Hope Elementary School, Monte Vista Elementary School, and Vieja Valley Elementary School.
The first series of $12 million was sold in May 2020, received in June 2020, and deposited in Fund 22 (Bonds). The district must spend 85% of those proceeds within three years. Staff predicts all $47.4 million proceeds will be spent by 2025. Closing out the bond program requirements by June 2026.
For more information, please see additional sections on the webpage to review the school site project list, timeline, and status.

Vieja Valley Elementary School Multi-Purpose Building Modernization – Substantially Completed November 2022 – Closeout Phase
Vieja Valley Elementary School Alterations – November 2024
Monte Vista Elementary School Alterations and New Classroom Building – Bid Phase
