A goal of the Saddleback Valley Unified School District is to provide an optimal learning environment for all of its students. District and site staff worked collaboratively with the District's architect to identify the facilities needs for the Facilities Master Plan in 2003. Voters in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District passed Measure B on March 2, 2004 to fund facilities improvements. The $180 million School Improvement and Repair Bond was supplemented with an additional $145 million from the State Facility Program matching funds for a total of $325 million in facilities improvements over the past 12 years. Measure B funds have been exhausted.
The District modernized, enhanced and/or built new facilities at every one of the 36 school sites. All proceeds from the sale of the bonds stayed within the community and were used only for District school facilities. No money was spent on administrators’ salaries. A Citizens’ Oversight Committee was appointed by the Board of Education to ensure that the proceeds were used as intended. This committee has monitored all funds and reviewed independent financial and performance audits annually.
