Information about Upcoming School Improvement Bond Measures

Excellent Education in Local Schools

Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) is committed to preparing our students to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world with innovative educational experiences and support to optimize learning environments for all students. Our schools have a longstanding track record of strong academic performance but some of our classrooms and school facilities are aging and require upgrades for safety and to keep pace with rising academic standards.

Locally-Controlled Funding to Maintain High-Quality Schools

In order to address school facility needs and provide maximum local control, the Board of Trustees has created two School Facility Improvement Districts (“SFIDs”) and has voted unanimously to place two separate bond measures on the March 2020 ballot. The first SFID encompasses the communities and schools of San Clemente and Capistrano Beach and the second SFID includes schools within Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, and Laguna Niguel. The formation of SFIDs dedicates funds raised by the bond measures to schools within each respective area.

If passed by 55% of the voters in each SFID, the local school improvement bond measures would provide locally-controlled funding to repair and improve Capistrano Unified schools. A citizens’ oversight committee, detailed project list, and annual audits would be required.

To see the breakout of the two SFIDs, including which schools they would encompass, what projects they would fund and how much they would cost each property owner, please click on the links below.
