School Bond Earns “Measure CC” Name for June 3 Ballot

7e008a25ce966d9212d3fb89414e3a7eThe bond issue that will help repair a wide array of facilities across all of Culver City Unified School District’s 10 school sites will be called Measure CC when it appears on the June 3, 2014 ballot.

Leading up to the placement of Measure CC on the ballot, CCUSD conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the condition of all our school facilities and presented its findings in a Facilities Master Plan, which is available on the district’s website – www.ccusd.org.

The range of projects funded if the bond passes will include:

Repairing or replacing deteriorating school floors, walls, windows, leaky roofs, plumbing systems and rest rooms.
Bringing schools up to modern standards for fire and earthquake safety, removing asbestos, fungus and other hazardous materials, and install needed fencing, lighting, locks and security to keep students safe.
Installing or upgrading air conditioning, heating and air filtration to ensure healthy learning environments.
Upgrading and repairing aging school electrical systems, and replacing science labs and equipment so that our schools can offer modern classroom technology and computer science to students.
Providing the technological equipment and the modern classrooms necessary to ensure that all of our students are college and career ready.
Providing permanent classrooms for our students in the continuation high school.

The Facilities Master Plan outlines a wide array of projects at each and every school site. Measure CC will improve the learning environment of all CCUSD students – from preschool to high school.

“The Culver City Unified School District has a great reputation, and it’s well-deserved,” said Laura Chardiet, co-chair f the Yes on Measure CC campaign. “Test scores are high, teachers are excellent, and the support of the community is second to none.”

“Unfortunately, because of tight budgets, the condition of our school facilities has deteriorated,” said co-chair Kathy Paspalis. “Now, is the time to do something about it. By passing Measure CC Culver City voters will ensure our schools are clean and safe and provide a first-rate learning environment for our kids. Improving our school campuses will also help preserve the high quality of life and strong property values residents enjoy.”

Measure CC is supported by all five members of the CCUSD Board of Education and hundreds of Culver City residents. For more information about Measure CC, please visit www.culvercitykids.org.

The daylong walk will conclude with a barbecue for volunteers at 4:30 p.m. at Carlson Park. For more information, please contact Jamie Wallace at [email protected]

  1. I couldn’t help but notice that the above article does not mention that the total estimated cost of Measure CC is the outrageous amount of $106,000,000! For a city of 4.5 square miles and less than 40,000 residents. 23-27% of the students attending Culver City School District are not Culver City residents and families would pay no taxes. Culver City recently passed a 1/2 cent sales tax, already has the highest User Utility Tax in the state at 13%, and now wants to add ONE HUNDRED AND SIX MILLION DOLLARS to that burden. Culver City is quickly becoming the highest taxed city in the highest taxed state of the union. Congratulations Centaurs!
