  • Important Information About Proposition R

    Lemon Grove School District’s General Obligation Bond

    Election Date:  November 4, 2014

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

    I am writing to provide you with information about Proposition R, a local general obligation (“G.O.”) bond reauthorization on this November’s ballot.

    If passed, Proposition R will reauthorize a portion of Proposition W general obligation bonds overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2008. This reauthorization will replace $10 million of unissued Proposition W bonds.  There will be no increase to the total amount of bonds originally approved by the voters in 2008.

    If passed, Proposition R will allow the District to continue making major renovations and upgrades to classrooms and schools throughout our District including:

    ·      Repairing and replacing leaky roofs

    ·      Adding additional classrooms to help relieve overcrowding

    ·      Increasing student access to computers and modern technology

    ·      Meeting handicapped accessibility requirements in classrooms and restrooms

    ·      Repairing and modernizing aging schools and educational facilities

    Proposition R requires approval by at least 55% of those voters casting ballots.  If passed, bond funds cannot be used for administrator or teacher salaries, benefits, or pensions. In addition, all bond expenditures must, by law, be annually reviewed by an independent citizens’ oversight committee and audited by an independent accounting firm.

    Repayment of the bonds will be made by an annual assessment of all property owners within the District.  The amount of this assessment, as well as many other questions, is covered more fully in the Frequently Asked Questions, which I urge you to read.

    I look forward to having an opportunity to further discuss Proposition R with you, or any other issues you may have.  Please feel free to contact me at the District office at (619) 825-5600 or you can email me at eanasto@lgsd.k12.ca.us.

    Sincerely,

    Ernie Anastos

    Superintendent

    INDEPENDENT CITIZENS’ OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE VACANCIES

          (Lemon Grove, CA) The Lemon Grove School District Governing Board has announced that it is seeking qualified, interested individuals to serve on a committee of community leaders to fill two vacancies on the Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee for the Proposition W School Facilities Bond program. The current vacancies must be filled by the parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District; a parent or guardian of a student enrolled in the District and active in a parent-teacher organization; an at-large community member; or a community member who is active in a senior citizens organization.

     
    On November 4, 2008, voters residing within the District passed Proposition W, a $28 million bond measure which authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and new construction projects to schools within the Lemon Grove School District. Proposition 39 requires a 55% super majority for approval; this bond was passed by 72%. After a bond authorized under Proposition 39 is passed, state law requires that the District’s Governing Board appoint an Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee to work with the District.
     
    The committee shall inform the public concerning the District’s expenditure of Proposition W bond proceeds; review the expenditure reports produced by the District to ensure that Proposition W bond proceeds were expended only for the purposes set forth in Proposition W;and present to the District’s Governing Board, in public session, an annual written report outlining their activities and conclusions regarding the expenditure of Proposition W bond proceeds.    All appointments will be made by the Governing Board from applications submitted to the District.
