Measure C-22 is a property tax bond measure that will provide money for badly needed security and classroom upgrades for all the elementary and middle schools in Morro Bay, Los Osos and San Luis Obispo.
Most of our schools are more than half a century old, and are in need of major modernization and infrastructure improvements. These include leaky roofs, outdated classroom technology, inefficient heating and cooling systems, and disability access needs.
This measure will also focus on schoolwide safety upgrades, such as perimeter fencing, inner locking doors, fire alarms, and cameras. These tools are necessary to keep our children as safe as possible.
All of the information regarding the Measure C-22 can be found on the San Luis Obispo County Election Website.
San Luis Coastal Unified School District has prepared a Facility Master Plan that details school-by-school needs, as well as a Transitional Kindergarten Reconfiguration Study and a Demographic Analysis. The Facility Master Plan indicates a potential need for $570 million in capital improvements, but District Trustees believe a more manageable amount for taxpayers is a $349 million bond, which will still deliver significant and badly needed improvements, both in terms of security, overall facility modernization, and classroom improvements.
