Measure K / COC

Background

In 2014, Azusa voters approved Measure K, the first general-obligation bond sought by Azusa Unified since 2002.   Measure K authorized the school district to issue, over roughly 8-10 years, a total of $92 million in general-obligation (GO) bonds to generate funds for repairing and modernizing our schools.   

 

Measure K continues the work begun under 2002’s Measure I.  The AUSD School Board carefully reviewed the progress made under Measure I and what was needed to complete it.  The Board gauged the community’s support for various bond amounts and determined that $92 million would allow AUSD to address the most pressing facilities needs to help ensure that our students could learn at safe, clean and modern schools.
