On behalf of Albany Unified School District Board of Education, students and staff, we express our deep appreciation to the Albany community for the successful passage of the School Improvement Bond Measures B & E. These bond measures will allow AUSD to make the necessary improvements to address seismic safety and overcrowding in Albany schools, and to ensure that our schools continue to provide safe and modern learning environments for our students.
Please be assured that we will do everything possible to guarantee that your hard earned tax dollars will be spent in the most cost effective manner possible. The Board of Education will establish an independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee to monitor expenditures from the bonds, to ensure that bond revenues are used as specified in the bond, and to inform the public about bond expenditures. Information about the process of forming the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee will be published in the next few weeks.
We are incredibly grateful to the many volunteers who worked so hard as part of the Measure B & E Building for Excellence campaigns. Measure B passed at 68% and Measure E at 73%.
If you want to provide input into facilities priorities and how the bonds are allocated, we invite you to attend the School Board meeting on June 28th at 7:00 p.m. in the City of Albany City Council Chambers. The Board of Education will begin discussion on setting facilities priorities and will provide information on the criteria for selection of the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee.
If you are unable to attend the June 28th School Board meeting, please watch the discussion when it is posted after the meeting at (http://albanyca.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.php?view_id=3) and then send your comments and questions to the Board (http://www.ausdk12.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=97076&type=d&pREC_ID=177521&hideMenu=1).
The Albany Unified School Board and AUSD staff values your input, and we encourage you to attend any meetings regarding the school bond measures and facilities priorities.
Superintendent of Albany Unified School District
