What is Measure L?
Measure L is a $172 million school facilities bond on the November 2018 ballot that will serve all Natomas schools – charter and non-charter.
Why Measure L Now?
NUSD celebrated its 25th-year Anniversary last year and projections show the district growing by thousands of new students over the next decade. Measure L is the next natural step in providing the funding necessary to implement the Facilities Master Plan by improving current schools and meeting the future needs of our growing community. This bond measure will help NUSD provide 21st century learning opportunities for many years to come.
