- Rowland Unified School District board member Robert Hidalgo: "With the (new) bond, the plans are to put a whole new face on Rowland High School along the perimeter so it has more of a college atmosphere with a quad and a new performing arts center that can sit as many as 500 to 1,000 patrons."
The question on the ballot:
|Measure R: "To continue to upgrade Rowland Unified schools, repair, equip, construct and/or reconstruct classrooms, roofs, multiuse facilities, gyms/athletic facilities, libraries, science & technology labs, and construct permanent classrooms to replace temporary portables, shall Rowland Unified School District issue $158.8 million in bonds at legal interest rates, with no funds for administrative salaries or employee pensions, with mandatory annual audits and independent citizen oversight?"|
