Ross Valley School District bond proposition, Measure A (November 2010)
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)
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.
A 55% supermajority vote was required for Measure A to pass.
- These final, certified results are from the Marin County elections office.
