Measure L School Facilities Bond
What is Measure L?
Measure L is a $172 million school facilities bond on the November 2018 ballot that would 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 would help NUSD provide 21st century learning opportunities for many years to come.
Safeguards and Funding
- Measure L would be paid for by local property owners at an annual cost not to exceed 6 cents per $100 of assessed valuation
- Proceeds could not be used for administrative salaries or positions
- Spending would be monitored by a citizens oversight committee and audited annually
