Support

Measure H was endorsed by the editorial board of the San Jose Mercury News, which said, "Cupertino Union, with nearly 19,000 students, has grown 20 percent in 10 years. Its middle schools are too small to accommodate even current elementary students, let alone future growth. Funds would be used to add classrooms, repair roofs and improve fire and earthquake safety, among other projects. They also would supply classroom technology."[1]

Ballot text

The question on the ballot:

MEASURE H: To continue providing high quality education for local students by fixing leaky school roofs, upgrading earthquake/fire safety, removing potentially hazardous materials from old structures, keeping schools clean and well-maintained, updating science labs/education technology, providing classrooms for student enrollment growth, and renovating, acquiring, constructing, equipping classrooms/sites/facilities, shall Cupertino Union School District issue $220,000,000 in bonds at legal rates with citizen oversight, annual audits, no funds for administrators’ salaries, all funds staying in local schools?[2]
