The Board of Trustees (“Board”) of the Coachella Valley Unified School (“District”) by adopting Resolution No. 2020-15 (“Resolution”), elected to call an election pursuant to Section 18 of Article XVI and Section 1 of Article XIIIA of the California Constitution and Section 15100 and 15264 et seq. of the California Education Code to obtain authorization to issue and sell general obligation Bonds (“Bonds”) in the aggregate amount principal amount of two hundred and thirty million dollars ($230,000,000).

This Measure was placed on the ballot by the Board of the District.

The Bonds would be used by the District to rebuild Coachella Valley High School, construct North Shore Elementary School. Construct, modernize and renovate classrooms, labs, equipment and facilities, technology and infrastructure. The Bonds may be used for school facilities projects such as modernizing classrooms, buildings, furnishings, computer equipment, technology upgrades, plumbing and electrical facilities, solar projects and security infrastructure. The Bonds would not be used to fund the salaries, pensions or benefits of any board members, administrator, and/or teachers or for other school operating expenses.

If Measure G is approved, the Board of the District will appoint a citizens’ oversight committee, and conduct annual independent financial and performance audits to ensure that bond funds are spent only on the construction, modernization, rehabilitation, or replacement of school facilities, furnishings and/or equipment, or the acquisition or lease of property for school facilities, and for no other purposes.

An ad valorem tax would be levied and collected on property within the boundaries of the District to pay the principal and interest on the Bonds. The best estimate of the average annual tax rate at this time is 5.596 cents per $100 per assessment (or $55.96 per $100,000) of assessed value. The final fiscal year in which the tax to be levied to fund this bond issue is anticipated to be collected is fiscal year 2054-2055.

The Resolution provides that the maximum interest rate on the Bonds will not exceed the maximum statutory interest and the maximum term of the Bonds, or any series thereof, will not exceed the maximum statutory term. The best estimate of the total debt service, including the principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all of the bonds are issued and sold is $446,640,000.

For this Measure to be approved fifty-five percent (55%) of qualified voters who vote on the Measure must vote yes.

A “YES” vote on Measure “G” is a vote to allow the District to sell the Bonds and levy the necessary taxes to pay for the Bonds.

A “NO” vote on Measure “G” is a vote against allowing the District to sell the Bonds and levy the necessary taxes to pay for the Bonds.

An election will be held in the Coachella Valley Unified School District (the “District”) on March 3, 2020, to authorize the sale of up to $230,000,000 in bonds of the District to finance school facilities as described in the proposition. If the bonds are approved, the District expects to issue the bonds in multiple series over time. Principal and interest on the bonds will be payable from the proceeds of tax levies made upon the taxable property in the District. The following information is provided in compliance with Sections 9400 through 9405 of the California Elections Code.

1.             The best estimate of the average annual tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue over the entire duration of the bond debt service, based on assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is 5.596 cents per $100 ($55.96 per $100,000) of assessed valuation. The final fiscal year in which the tax to be levied to fund this bond issue is anticipated to be collected is fiscal year 2054-55.

2.             The best estimate of the highest tax rate that would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is 6.00 cents per $100 ($60.00 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2020-21 and such tax rate is expected to continue through fiscal year 2048-49.

3.             The best estimate of the total debt service, including the principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all of the bonds are issued and sold is approximately $446,640,000.

Voters should note that estimated tax rates are based on the ASSESSED VALUE of taxable property on the County’s official tax rolls, not on the property’s market value, which could be more or less than the assessed value. In addition, taxpayers eligible for a property tax exemption, such as the homeowner’s exemption, will be taxed at a lower effective tax rate than described above. Property owners should consult their own property tax bills and tax advisors to determine their property’s assessed value and any applicable tax exemptions.

Attention of all voters is directed to the fact that the foregoing information is based upon the District’s projections and estimates only, which are not binding upon the District. The average annual tax rate, the highest tax rate, the final fiscal year in which the tax is anticipated to be collected and the year or years in which they will apply, and the actual total debt service, may vary from those presently estimated for a variety of reasons, including, without limitation, due to variations in the timing of bond sales, the amount or amortization of bonds sold, market conditions at the time of each sale, and actual assessed valuations over the term of repayment of the bonds. The dates of sale and the amount or amortization of bonds sold at any given time will be determined by the District based on need for construction funds and other factors, including the legal limitations on bonds approved by a 55% affirmative vote. Market conditions, including, without limitation, interest rates, are affected by economic and other factors beyond the control of the District and will depend on the bond market at the time of each sale. Actual future assessed valuation will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the District as determined by the County Assessor in the annual assessment and the equalization process. The growth or decline in assessed valuation is the result of a number of economic and other factors outside the control of the District.

Published Arguments — Arguments for and against the ballot measure

Argumento A FAVOR

r high schools are some of the most important assets in our community and should be our number one priority. Quality schools improve student achievement, improve property values, prepare children for a productive future, and create greater neighborhood safety. Our teachers and staff do a great job educating local children, but classrooms and buildings in the Coachella Valley Unified School District need to be upgraded to provide students with the school facilities they need to succeed.

While our facilities have been well maintained, outdated classrooms must be upgraded. A local school improvement measure would allow the District to improve the quality of the school facilities and education provided to local children. By investing in our schools, we can meet today’s safety, technological, and educational standards as well as better our community.

If passed, Measure G will provide funding to make critical facility improvements to Coachella Valley schools, including:

l Repairing or replacing leaky roofs

l Making health, safety and handicapped accessibility improvements

l Repairing or replacing outdated heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems

l Updating inadequate electrical systems; and

l Rebuilding and constructing classrooms, restrooms and school facilities

Measure G makes financial sense and protects taxpayers.

l By law, spending must be reviewed and annually audited by an independent citizens’ oversight committee.

l All bond funds must be spent locally and cannot be taken by the State.

l Funds are required to be spent only on our local schools, not for administrator or teacher salaries.

Measure G rebuilds and constructs classroom restrooms and other school facilities, improves the education of local children, and maintains the quality of our communities. That’s something we can all support. Please VOTE YES ON MEASURE G!

COACHELLA VALLEY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
CLASSROOM SAFETY, RENOVATION AND CONSTRUCTION

 

MEASURE

 

This proposition may be known and referred to as the “Coachella Valley Unified School District Classroom Safety, Renovation and Construction Measure” or as “Measure G”.

 

BOND AUTHORIZATION

 

By approval of this proposition by at least 55% of the voters of the Coachella Valley Unified School District (the “District”) voting on the proposition, the District shall be authorized to issue and sell bonds of up to $230,000,000 in aggregate principal amount to provide financing for the specific school facilities projects listed under the heading entitled “BOND PROJECT LIST” below (the “Bond Project List”), and qualify to receive State of California matching grant funds, subject to all of the accountability safeguards specified below.

 

ACCOUNTABILITY SAFEGUARDS

 

The provisions in this section are specifically included in this proposition in order that the voters and taxpayers of the District may be assured that their money will be spent to address specific school facilities needs of the District, all in compliance with the requirements of Article XIIIA, Section 1(b)(3) of the California Constitution, and the Strict Accountability in Local School Construction Bonds Act of 2000 (codified at Sections 15264 and following of the California Education Code (the “Education Code”)).

 

Evaluation of Needs. The Board of Trustees of the District (the “Board”) is preparing a long range facilities master plan in order to evaluate and address the facilities needs of the District, and to determine which projects to finance from a local bond at this time. The Board hereby certifies that it has evaluated safety, class size reduction and information technology needs in developing the Bond Project List.

 

Limitations on Use of Bonds. Proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition shall be used only for the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities, or the acquisition or lease of real property for school facilities, and not for any other purpose, including teacher and administrator salaries and other school operating expenses. More specifically, the Bond Project List provides for the specific projects the District proposes to finance with proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition and such proceeds shall be applied only to those specific purposes.

 

Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee. In accordance with and pursuant to Education Code Section 15278 and following, the Board shall establish an independent citizens’ oversight committee, to ensure proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition are expended only for the school facilities projects listed in the Bond Project List. The committee shall be established within 60 days of the date that the Board enters the election results on its minutes pursuant to Section 15274 of the Education Code. In accordance with Section 15282 of the Education Code, the citizens’ oversight committee shall consist of at least seven members and shall include a member active in a business organization representing the business community located within the District, a member active in a senior citizens’ organization, a member active in a bona fide taxpayers’ organization, a member that is a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the District, and a member that is both a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the District and active in a parent-teacher organization. No employee or official of the District and no vendor, contractor or consultant of the District shall be appointed to the citizens’ oversight committee.

 

Annual Performance Audits. In compliance with the requirements of Article XIIIA, Section 1(b)(3)(C) of the California Constitution, and the Strict Accountability in Local School Construction Bonds Act of 2000, the Board shall conduct an annual, independent performance audit to ensure that the proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition have been expended only on the school facilities projects listed in the Bond Project List. These audits shall be conducted in accordance with the Government Auditing Standards issued by the Comptroller General of the United States for performance audits. The results of these audits shall be made publicly available and shall be submitted to the citizens’ oversight committee in accordance with Section 15286 of the Education Code.

 

Annual Financial Audits. In compliance with the requirements of Article XIIIA, Section 1(b)(3)(D) of the California Constitution, and the Strict Accountability in Local School Construction Bonds Act of 2000, the Board shall conduct an annual, independent financial audit of the proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition until all of those proceeds have been spent for the school facilities projects listed in the Bond Project List. These audits shall be conducted in accordance with the Government Auditing Standards issued by the Comptroller General of the United States for financial audits. The results of these audits shall be made publicly available and shall be submitted to the citizens’ oversight committee in accordance with Section 15286 of the Education Code.

 

Special Bond Proceeds Account; Annual Report to Board. In compliance with the requirements of California Government Code Section 53410 and following, upon approval of this proposition and the sale of any bonds approved, the Board shall take actions necessary to establish an account in which proceeds of the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition shall be deposited. In compliance with the requirements of California Government Code Section 53411, as long as any proceeds of the bonds remain unexpended, the chief fiscal officer of the District shall cause a report to be filed with the Board no later than January 1 of each year, commencing on the first January 1 after the sale of the first series of bonds, stating (a) the amount of funds collected and expended in that year, and (b) the status of any project required or authorized to be funded from bond proceeds. The report may relate to the calendar year, fiscal year, or other appropriate annual period as the chief fiscal officer of the District shall determine, and may be incorporated into the annual budget, audit, or other appropriate routine report to the Board. 

FURTHER SPECIFICATIONS

 

 

Joint-Use Projects. The District may enter into agreements with other public agencies or nonprofit organizations for joint use of the school facilities financed with the proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition in accordance with Education Code Section 17077.42 (or any successor provision). The District may seek State grant funds for eligible joint-use projects as permitted by law, and this proposition hereby specifies and acknowledges that, subject to the limitations on the uses provided for herein, the proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition will or may be used to fund all or a portion of the local share for any eligible joint-use projects identified in the Bond Project List or as otherwise permitted by California State regulations, as the Board shall determine.

 

Single Purpose. All of the purposes enumerated in this proposition shall be united and voted upon as one single proposition, pursuant to Education Code Section 15100, and all the enumerated purposes shall constitute the specific single purpose of the bonds, and the proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition shall be spent only for such purpose, pursuant to California Government Code Section 53410.

 

Bonds may be Issued in Excess of Statutory Bonding Limit. Issuance of all of the authorized bonds might require the outstanding debt of the District to exceed its statutory bonding limit of 2.50% of the total assessed valuation of taxable property in the District. In that event, the District intends to seek a waiver of its bonding limit from the State Board of Education, which has the power to waive certain requirements of the Education Code applicable to the District. By approval of this proposition, the voters have authorized the District to seek such a waiver, and to issue authorized bonds in excess of the 2.50% limit as the State Board of Education may approve. No such waiver has yet been sought or granted.

 

Other Terms of the Bonds. When sold, the bonds shall bear interest at an annual rate not exceeding the statutory maximum, and that interest shall be made payable at the time or times permitted by law. The bonds may be issued and sold in several series, and no bond shall be made to mature more than the statutory maximum number of years from the date borne by that bond.

 

ESTIMATED BALLOT INFORMATION

 

The District is required by law to include in the statement of the measure to be voted on estimates of the amount of money to be raised annually to repay the bonds and the rate and duration of the tax to be levied for the bonds. As of the time this proposition was placed on the ballot, the District estimated an average tax rate of approximately 5.6 cents per $100 of assessed valuation (annual repayment amount averaging $12,760,000) while the bonds are outstanding (estimated to be approximately 35 years). Attention of all voters is directed to the fact that such information is based upon the District’s projections and estimates only, which are not binding upon the District. The amount of money to be raised annually and the rate and duration of the tax to be levied for the bonds may vary from those presently estimated due to variations from these estimates in the timing of bond sales, the amount of bonds sold and market interest rates at the time of each sale, and actual assessed valuations over the term of repayment of the bonds. The dates of sale and the amount of bonds sold at any given time will be determined by the District based on need for construction funds and other factors. The actual interest rates at which the bonds will be sold will depend on the bond market at the time of each sale. Actual future assessed valuation will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the District as determined by the County Assessor in the annual assessment and the equalization process.

 

BOND PROJECT LIST

 

The Bond Project List below lists the specific projects the District proposes to finance with proceeds of the bonds. The Bond Project List shall be considered a part of this bond proposition and shall be reproduced in any official document required to contain the full statement of the bond proposition. Listed projects will be completed as needed at a particular school or school facility site according to Board-established priorities, and the order in which such projects appear on the Bond Project List is not an indication of priority for funding or completion. In so far as permitted by law, each project is assumed to include its share of costs of the election and bond issuance, construction-related costs, such as project and construction management, architectural, engineering, inspection and similar planning and testing costs, demolition and interim housing costs, legal, accounting and similar fees, costs related to the independent annual financial and performance audits, a contingency for unforeseen design and construction costs, and other costs incidental to or necessary for completion of the listed projects (whether the related work is performed by the District or third parties). The final cost of each project will be determined as plans are finalized, construction bids are awarded, and projects are completed. In addition, certain construction funds expected from non-bond sources, including State of California grant funds for eligible projects, have not yet been secured. Therefore, the Board cannot guarantee that the bonds will provide sufficient funds to allow completion of all listed projects. Alternatively, if the District obtains unexpected funds from non-bond sources with respect to listed projects, such projects may be enhanced, supplemented or expanded to the extent of such funds. Some projects may be subject to further government approvals, including by State officials and boards and/or local environmental or agency approval. Inclusion of a project on the Bond Project List is not a guarantee that the project will be completed (regardless of whether bond funds are available).

 

The specific projects authorized to be financed with proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this proposition are as follows:
