SDCTA Supports Mountain Empire Unified School District $15 Million Bond Measure on November 6, 2018 Ballot
Mountain Empire Unified School District’s proposed bond measure meets key provisions of SDCTA’s Bond Support Criteria, and the District has demonstrated a clear need for the funds. The application submitted by MEUSD outlines draft budgets and timelines for each of the proposed projects. The descriptions of the projects submitted have been thoroughly vetted, and no reason has been found that would prevent the District from executing the projects.
In July 2018, the SDCTA had taken a position of SUPPORT, with the condition that the District adopted SDCTA-recommended best practices. Since then, the District’s General Counsel has adopted a “No Pay to Play” policy including planned ethics education for District Board members, SDCTA’s Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee Best Practices, and SDCTA’s School Construction and Professional Services Procurement Best Practices. This analysis reflects the updated position of SUPPORT.
