Measure D Fact Sheet
Fact Sheet

Fiscal Accountability

Measure D is a $260 million local school facilities bond measure that was approved by voters in November 2012. The measure passed with a “super majority” of over 55 percent of voters in favor in keeping with the requirements of Proposition 39 (Resolution No. 01/12-13: Measure D).  The lower threshold for passage mandates that a citizen’s bond oversight committee be chartered to ensure that bond funds are properly expended. Proposition 39 also requires yearly independent financial and performance audits. In addition to the legal requirements, SRVUSD is committed to transparency in how the funds are spent and in strong communication with the community. 

Bond Sales

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is pleased to share that the final bond sale of the $260 million Measure D authorization was completed on December 3, 2018. This sale stands as the third and final bond series issuance of Measure D. The sale generated the final $60 million in cash proceeds required to finance Measure D facilities projects and captured incredibly favorable financial terms for our community. The interest rate and the payback ratio secured in this final sale continue the District’s commitment to keep the total yearly cost to homeowners at or below $75 per $100,000 of assessed valuation. An average interest rate of 1.90% across the $60 million in bonds, combined with a payback ratio of 1.08 or just $64.9 million, maximizes the amount of community tax dollars invested directly into Measure D facilities projects.

This latest bond sale will provide the necessary cash flow to complete two of Measure D’s largest projects, the new classroom building at SRVHS, and the new classroom and MPR buildings at Stone Valley Middle School. Additionally, the bond sale will be used to complete the modernizations at Golden View, Montevideo, Ranch Romero, Vista Grande, and Green Valley Elementary Schools this summer, 2019. Lastly, the District will begin the modernization at Sycamore Elementary in the summer 2019, as well as the modernizations at Alamo and Twin Creeks Elementary Schools and Charlotte Wood Middle School summer, 2020. The SRVUSD thanks the community for supporting the investment in our school facilities by authorizing the Measure D bond program.

History of Measure D Bond Sales

The first of the four bond sales was completed in February 2013 with net proceeds of $75 million. On March 10, 2015, the SRVUSD Board of Education voted to take advantage of low bond interest rates and increasing property values to accelerate the 2012 Measure D Bond issuance plan. This decision moved up the completion of the Measure D program by an estimated two years.  By capturing interest rates at or near historic lows, this move resulted in reduced debt services for taxpayers.  The acceleration of the overall Measure D program, accomplished by issuing more bonds earlier than anticipated, avoided an estimated $8 million of project-cost escalation.

The Board’s vote authorized the issuance of up to $125 million in current interest bonds using the same conservative assessed value growth assumptions used in 2012 and maintains the $75 max tax rate. This reduced the number of bond issuances from four to three, with the final series issued in 2018. The $125 million was based on the construction needs and the desire to accelerate projects.

Audit Reports

Proposition 39 requires yearly independent financial and independent performance audits. The firm of Vavrinek, Trine, Day & Co., LLP conducts these audits. Their audit reports for fiscal year ending June 30, are conducted in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. The past four years of audits are posted below.
