What will $270 million do for Glendale Unified?

Glendale Unified officials are scheduled to provide a rundown of Measure S-funded projects during a meeting at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at Glendale High School. It is open to all community members, and will focus specifically on upgrades to school facilities that will be available for use by non-students, according to district spokesman Steve Frasher.  

The $270-million school bond passed on April 5 with 69.9% of the vote – well above the 55% needed – and is being phased in on the heels of Measure K, a $186-million bond passed in 1997. The cost of Measure S to property owners will remain even with that of the earlier bond, about $46 per $100,000 of assessed value through 2050, according to district officials.

The first series of Measure S bonds - $54 million – were issued in September. Priority projects include technology upgrades and safety and security enhancements at school sites.
