ACUSD Board of Trustees Place Measure A on November Ballot

The ACUSD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to place Measure A, a $78 million local school repair and improvement bond measure, on the November 6th, 2018 ballot.  If approved, Measure A will remove mold, asbestos and lead paint from schools, repair aging fire safety and electrical systems, and maintain drinking water safety.  Measure A would also repair leaky roofs and decaying walls, update deteriorating plumbing and bathrooms, repair and equip outdated computer labs and classrooms that support science, technology, engineering, math and the arts, and improve access for students with disabilities.  All funds would benefit Amador County Unified schools as well as be controlled locally and would not be taken by the state.  A Citizens’ Oversight Committee and annual audits would ensure funds are spent efficiently and as promised.  No funds would be spent on administrators’ salaries or benefits.  The annual cost of this measure is not expected to exceed $59 per $100,000 of assessed value per year.  The $78 million in bonds will be levied by an estimated average of 5.9 cents per $100 of assessed value, approximately $3.9 million annually.  In order to pass, Measure A must be supported by 55% of those who vote on it.  All registered voters in ACUSD are eligible to vote on Measure A.  Visit www.registertovote.ca.gov or call 223-6465 to register to vote or update your registration information.
