SFID #2: San Clemente and Capistrano Beach

School Facility Improvement District #2
San Clemente and Capistrano Beach

Upgrades for Safety and Student Achievement

Our classrooms and school facilities are aging and require upgrades for safety and to keep pace with rising academic standards. Capistrano USD has conducted a thorough assessment of all school facilities to identify the most urgent and high priority improvements, which include enhancing safety, modernizing older schools, providing up-to-date equipment and technology, and more.

Dedicated Local Funding for School Improvements

The Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees unanimously voted to place a local school improvement bond measure on the March 2020 ballot that could generate up to $120 million in local funding to repair and modernize schools within the SFID that encompasses San Clemente and Capistrano Beach. If passed by 55% of voters, this measure would cost homeowners $34 per $100,000 of the assessed value of their home while bonds are outstanding. Repairs and upgrades to our neighborhood schools could include:

  • Repairing or replacing leaky roofs, old rusty plumbing and failing electrical systems
  • Upgrading classrooms, science labs, and technology to support high-quality instruction in science, technology, engineering, and math
  • Modernizing labs and career training facilities that prepare students for careers in healthcare, biomedical, computer science, robotics, and skilled trades
  • Replacing wood and support beams that have termite damage and dry rot and removing hazardous materials like asbestos and lead paint from older school sites
  • Replacing aging portable classrooms with safe, modern classrooms that meet today’s academic standards
  • Upgrading older schools so they meet the same academic and safety standards as newer schools

The school improvement bond measure would require a clear system of fiscal accountability including a detailed project list and an independent citizens’ oversight committee. No funds could be taken by the State or be diverted to other schools within our district or region.
