Voting Yes on this measure will help maintain Palos Verdes Peninsula’s excellent schools. Schools that attract young families and lead to high property values, protect our investments, and make this community a great place to live.
Our schools average 60 years old, and most have not been renovated in almost twenty years. Investing in our schools now is fiscally responsible. Pushing the burden off until later will significantly increase costs as conditions continue to deteriorate and construction costs escalate.
The Palos Verdes Peninsula School District receives a below-average portion of state funding, which strains schools’ budgets. The quality of our facilities has already fallen below our neighboring districts, all of which are investing more in their schools.
Passing this measure will guarantee that one hundred percent of the funds go directly back to our schools, with complete local control of how the money is spent. A local independent commission will be appointed from members of the community to review and audit all spending.
Funds will go towards retrofitting school buildings to meet new statewide seismic codes and improving earthquake safety; increasing access to safe, good quality drinking water; updating fire safety and security systems; complying with the Americans With Disabilities Act, so all students will have the same access to education as their peers; repairing deteriorating school roofs.
Montemalaga Elementary will benefit in many ways by passing this bond.  Air conditioning and upgraded playground equipment will just be the start!
