2023 Bond Referendum
The goals of the 2023 BCSD Bond Referendum are to address academic needs, improve school safety, and address population growth through the addition, rebuilding, and replacing of aging facilities and the expansion of Career and Technical Education (CTE) spaces to address academic needs. The CPRC 2.0 (Community Project Review Committee) members dedicated over 900 hours visiting schools and consulting with experts to create a prioritized district-wide projects list.
The $439 million investment will continue the work initiated by the 2019 referendum, allowing us to address crucial needs without requiring a tax increase.
The BCSD will be holding referendum information sessions that will be posted to this website.
As part of the 2019 referendum, Dr. Rodriguez established a Citizen Led Oversight Committee (CLOC), an independent group of volunteers who monitor all referendum building projects, schedules, budgets, and expenditures. Should the 2023 referendum be approved, CLOC will continue serving as an independent watchdog by monitoring projects and spending and then reporting directly to the public and the Board of Education.
