If this measure passes, the District would be authorized to levy a tax on each parcel of taxable property within the District to generate revenue to repay the bonds. A parcel of taxable real property is any unit of real property located in the District that receives a separate property tax bill from the Contra Costa County Treasurer-Tax Collector's Office.
The tax would not be levied on parcels that are exempt from paying property taxes. The measure would authorize the District to issue and sell bonds under authority of the California Government Code, and the California Education Code. Bonds issued under the Government Code could have a maturity of up to 40 years.
Bonds issued under the Education Code could have a maturity of up to 25 years. The bonds would bear interest at a rate not to exceed the rate authorized by law. Proceeds from the sale of bonds would be used to finance the school facility improvements specified in the measure.
The proceeds may only be used for the purposes specified in the measure. The measure provides that, depending on the cost of each improvement to be financed with bond proceeds, some improvements may be delayed, or may not be completed.
The District assumes that it will receive matching state funds to finance some of the improvements specified in the measure. The measure states that, without matching State funds, some improvements will not be completed.
State law requires the District to conduct an annual performance audit, and, as long as any funds remain unspent, an annual independent financial audit, to ensure that funds are used only for the purposes described in the measure.
The measure also would require the District to establish an independent citizens' oversight committee that would ensure funds are used only for the purposes described in the measure.

Arguments Against Measure E Our students deserve safe schools, upgraded classrooms, and state-ofthe-art computer labs to help them reach their potential and succeed in today's economy. The West Contra Costa School District has worked diligently to leverage local funds to obtain matching state grants that upgraded schools throughout our community and provided safe, clean classrooms for students to learn in.
Measure E will allow the school district to work with the existing, successful bond program to complete much of its master plan and provide every student with a quality classroom. Upgrade schools for earthquake safety and handicap accessibility; Provide computer and science labs to help provide our students with resources to succeed; Remove asbestos and other hazardous materials; Upgrade classrooms to support core academics -- math, science, reading and writing; Upgrade technology and energy systems to reduce costs and increase sustainability; Provide classrooms for job training to prepare students for the workforce; Provide space for after-school programs so kids are safe from gangs and drugs; and Replace aging, outdated and deteriorated schools and classrooms.
All money spent will be subject to annual independent financial audits and review by an independent citizens' oversight committee.
No funds from this bond measure will be used for administrator's salaries or pensions. The money will only be spent on schools in our community and none of the funds can be taken by the state. Measure E will help our school district provide a safe, healthy learning environment for our students and give them the tools they need to succeed.
Since school money is scarce, every dollar must be stretched and used carefully. We're concerned that Measure E is unaffordable and jeopardizes our financial future. Bonds are an expensive form of debt.
As with a home mortgage, bonds are repaid over time. In considering this measure, voters should ask: Is it prudent to assume more debt right now? This bond says it will fix many of the same problems as previous bonds. Were past bonds spent as originally promised? Are the projects covered by this bond truly necessary?
Independent supervision of bond spending is in doubt because all members of the Bond Oversight Committee are approved by the School Board.
The School Board also has its own representatives on that Committee. Isn't there a conflict of interest? With declining school enrollment does it make sense to continue all this construction?
Until these questions are answered, residents should vote NO on Measure E!Tax consultants are available for hire in Riverside.
