Measure G Bond
The District’s $198,250,000 General Obligation Bond (Measure G) successfully passed in the November 6, 2012 election, enabling the District to finance technology and facility improvements. On February 21, 2013, the District successfully sold $55 million of bonds, Series “A”, for the funding of these improvements. The current interest structure allowed a True Interest Cost (TIC) of 3.6431% for the 30 year financing. Based on the assessment provided by Cumming, our facilities consultant, staff has prioritized the first $55 million of bond proceeds into the following five categories: Major Maintenance & Repairs, Modernize School Facilities, Safety & Code Upgrades, Technology, and Cost Savings. The 2013 summer bond projects will include the Burnett modernization, Charter School multipurpose room, the Britton fencing project (in cooperation with Home & School Club), and various roofing projects.
Citizens’ Oversight Committee
This Board appointed committee was established to inform the public concerning the expenditure of the Measure G Bond proceeds. The Committee’s legal charge is to actively review and report on the expenditure of taxpayers’ money for school construction in accordance with voter-approved projects, ensuring the Measure G bond revenues are expended only for the purpose described.

The Morgan Hill Unified School District has initiated a Facilities Master Plan (FMP) process to identify long term demographic trends, assess current facilities conditions, and envision educational program opportunities in order to develop strategies that address these needs, and their impact to the school site facilities, in a comprehensive and thoughtful manner. The FMP will strive to align with and support the District’s Mission:
“The Morgan Hill Unified School District’s central purpose is to educate students. In partnership with parents and the community, we create learning environments where all students learn and are empowered to achieve their unique potential. We model and nurture civility, respect, compassion, personal responsibility, curiosity, and integrity in an environment of diversity, equity, and service.”
As a District, we value our stakeholders and understand that an effective Facilities Master Plan must be built on a foundation of District, Parent and Local Community input. The FMPC will meet monthly during the development of the plan recommendations. Presentations will be heard about the status and progress of the Master Plan, with updates on critical issues that arise during its development.
