Featured Resolution

Joint Resolution No. 21-72: In support of Assembly Bill 75, Kindergarten-Community Colleges Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2022

Whereas, the San Mateo County Board of Education and County Superintendent of Schools are committed to providing a quality education to our students and preparing them to succeed in today’s global economy; and

Whereas, replacing, upgrading, and/or building new classrooms and facilities is expensive and state school bond funds provide the opportunity for districts to build safe, welcoming, and modem classrooms that offer the learning opportunities required for a high-quality 21st century education; and

Whereas, Assembly Bill 75, as currently written, authorizes the Kindergarten-Community Colleges Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2022 (Bond Act of 2022), providing funding for renovation and improvements of existing classrooms, construction of new classrooms and school facilities, and upgrades for HVAC and clean air filters; and

Whereas, new bond funds will expand Career Technical Education facilities to improve job and career training, provide funds to meet new needs related to COVID-19 as well as assistance for small school districts, charter school facilities, and interim housing to assist districts impacted by natural disasters; and

Whereas, the passage of a new State Facility Bond will create jobs throughout California, including careers within the building trades; and

Whereas, the State of California has committed funds from all previous bond measures and is currently facing an increasing backlog of unfunded needs, currently at over $3 billion dollars; and

Whereas, Assembly Bill 75, the Bond Act of 2022, will not raise individual local property taxes and reduces the need for additional local property taxes for school facilities;

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved that the San Mateo County Board of Education and County Superintendent of Schools support the Assembly Bill 75 the Kindergarten-Community Colleges Public Education Facilities Bond Act of2022 in its current form as drafted and published on May 24, 2021.
