A Ross Valley School District bond proposition, Measure A was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in the Ross Valley School District in Marin County.[1] It was approved.

Measure A allowed the Ross Valley School Board to borrow $41 million.

Some of the specific projects that were designed to be funded under Measure A include:

  • More classrooms for the district's elementary and middle schools.
  • Replacement of the 19-year-old portable classrooms at Fairfax's White Hill Middle School with permanent structures (about $30 million)
  • Add two to six new classrooms to each of the district's four elementary schools in Fairfax and San Anselmo (about $11 million)[2]

Measure A was estimated to cost Ross Valley property owners about $29 per $100,000 of assessed value each year for about 30 years, if it is approved.[2]

A 55 percent supermajority vote was required for Measure A to pass.
