Proposition O is part of the District’s comprehensive Capital Facilities Financing Plan (CFFP). All schools and students in the Sweetwater District will benefit from Proposition O. The latest CFFP can be found on BoardDocs as agenda item M-1.
Proposition O will:
- Upgrade classrooms/restrooms/science labs/technology
- Improve handicap accessibility
- Remove asbestos/lead paint
- Upgrade fire and life safety systems
Proposition O is subject to strict accountability requirements, including independent citizen oversight and annual audits, to guarantee improvements specified in the District’s facilities master plan are completed efficiently and as promised. Proposition O funds can only be spent on our neighborhood secondary and adult schools to benefit local students. None can be spent on administrator salaries or district offices. Quality school facilities help retain and attract qualified teachers. Good schools maintain local quality of life and strong values.
Staff will also be closing out all Proposition BB projects as part of the Prop O Bond Program.
