State of Our Facilities

2012 Measure A

This year marks the completion of projects funded by Measure A.
 
In 2012 the community supported Measure A, a bond  that brought repairs, modernizations and new construction to every school in Clovis Unified. Among the projects were a new elementary school, modernization of libraries, multipurpose rooms and administration buildings, and phases of upgrades to technology infrastructure, lighting, HVAC systems, roofing, flooring, security systems and other items. This year marks the completion of projects funded by Measure A.
Under Measure A, pool equipment at Clovis West’s Olympic Swim Complex was renovated. The school and local swim clubs use the facility regularly, and CIF holds its State Swimming and Diving Championships there.
Construction has begun on the new Janet L. Young Elementary School located at Shields and Locan avenues.
Measure A provided funds for library upgrades at several schools including a new reading room at Clovis Elementary.

What’s next

Next year, 76 percent of our schools will be 20 years old or older, and by 2029, that number jumps to 94 percent. As our schools continue to age and our community continues to grow, the need for resources dedicated to facilities remains a concern for the future. 

Earlier this year, a committee of citizens convened to study the district’s capital facility program. This group spent six months studying city and county growth plans, revisiting our Facilities Audit & Master Plan, and examining available financial resources for school facility repairs, maintenance and growth. At the conclusion of their study, the group reported to the CUSD Governing Board their determination that a new bond measure was needed on the March 2020 ballot.

After gathering feedback from the community, the Governing Board will consider action in October on a possible $408 million bond measure that, if approved, would: 
  • Provide funds to build a new high school and intermediate school to accommodate population growth
  • Repair and upgrade science, engineering and math classrooms
  • Update classrooms and construct additional Career Technical Education facilities
  • Improve safety and security by updating lighting, camera and communication systems
  • Fix leaking roofs, electrical wiring, fire safety doors and smoke alarms at schools
  • Maintain equitable facilities at schools of all ages to ensure every child has access to high-quality learning
    environments

 

More information about a possible bond measure can be found at cusd.com/possiblebond. Included in the online information is an interactive map with details about past and future bond projects, and a feedback form to allow for comment and questions from the community.
