Voters in 57 California school districts to decide on over $4 billion in bonds
$4,071,200,000 is the total that the 57 school districts are requesting, ranging from the lowest request of $2.1 million for the Julian Union High School District in San Diego County to the highest request of $349 million for the Ohlone Community College District in Alameda County.
The 57 school bond measures on the November ballot are in addition to about 20 school parcel tax requests.
Two years ago, on November 4, 2008, 96 school districts had bond measures on the ballot, requesting over $22.5 billion. The total of 57 school bond measures on the November 2010 ballot is slightly less than 60% of the number on the November 2008 ballot, but the total amount requested in 2010 is only about 18% of the $22 billion that was requested in 2008. More than 90% of the November 2008 requests were approved.
