School board leaders tonight could decide whether to ask city voters in June to approve a $95 million bond to repair and improve classrooms, labs and other facilities around Milpitas Unified School District.
According to board documents, if passed, all bond money would go to the district. It would pay for the district to fix leaky roofs; improve science lab equipment; build new classrooms; upgrade fire and earthquake safety features; become more energy efficient; improve access for students with disabilities; and make other upgrades.
The school district is not the only group eyeing the June ballot to raise money. Milpitas City Council declared a fiscal emergency last week that would make it easier for the city to pass a new tax. While that tax has not been proposed or approved, the city declared the emergency with the idea that voters could consider a new city tax in June.
The board meets at 7 p.m. in Building 500, 1331 E. Calaveras Blvd., Milpitas. For information visit the district's webpage.
