Creating Safe, 21st-Century Schools

Aliso Viejo, Dana Point & Laguna Niguel

Our neighborhood schools have provided a high-quality education to local students for over 40 years and have a longstanding track record of strong academic performance.

But many of our schools were built between 25 and 40 years ago and need to be repaired and upgraded so our local schools can continue serving our communities for decades to come. Due to their age, some local schools have outdated classrooms, science labs and instructional technology that must be upgraded in order to meet the same academic and safety standards as newer schools in our area. Capistrano Unified School District has conducted a thorough assessment of all school facilities to identify the most urgent and high priority improvements.

Dedicated Local Funding for School Improvements

In order to address school facility needs and provide maximum local control, the Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees has voted to place a local school improvement bond measure on the March 2020 ballot.

This measure could generate up to $300 million in locally controlled funding to repair and modernize schools within the School Facility Improvement District (SFID) that would encompass Aliso Viejo, Dana Point and Laguna Niguel. This measure would cost homeowners $34 per $100,000 of the assessed value of their home while bonds are outstanding. Funds generated by this local school improvement bond measure would go directly to repair and upgrade our local schools.
