Measure E Bond Overview
About Measure E
Measure E is the $650 million general obligation bond passed by Fremont voters on June 3, 2014, with a 61.8% YES vote to modernize neighborhood schools by:
- Updating technology and aging classrooms as well as math, science and computer labs for 21st Century learning
- Upgrading electrical wiring to current safety codes
- Fixing and replacing leaky roofs and aging plumbing and restrooms
- Removing asbestos
- Repairing, constructing and acquiring classrooms, sites, facilities and equipment
All Measure E funding is dedicated to improving Fremont schools. No bond money goes to salaries, benefits or pensions for administrators or teachers.
After passage of Measure E, the Fremont Unified School District Board of Education appointed members to the Measure E Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee.
The focus of the committee is to ensure that bond funding is “used only for the acquisition, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities.”
