Bond Information

Bond Citizen Oversight Committee

The Moraga School District Board of Trustees is establishing a Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee to review expenditures from construction activity associated with Measure V, which was approved by District voters on November 8, 2016.  The Committee will be responsible for ensuring that bond revenues are used only as voters intended and for informing the public of bond expenditures. The Board invites all interested community members to apply for service on the Bond Oversight Committee.  For more information and an application, click HERE or visit the MSD website www.moraga.k12.ca.us, click on Facilities and Bond Information.  Applications are due to the MSD office, 1540 School Street, Moraga, Ca 94556 by 5:00 PM on February 9, 2017.

Pre-Bond Election Information

While local students continue to excel, all of our Moraga schools are nearly 50 years old and in need of renovation. Recently, our District completed a Facilities Master Plan — conducted by school architects and third-party experts — to identify school repair needs and develop a plan to provide a safe and modern learning environment for our students. Specifically, fixing leaky roofs and updating deteriorating plumbing, heating, and ventilation systems would allow local teachers and students to focus on core academics and innovative programs in the classroom. Additionally, improving access to modern technology would help equip local children for success in high school, college, and the 21st Century.

Unfortunately, we cannot rely on the state to fund these necessary repairs in our local Moraga schools.  In order to address identified needs, a local source of funding is needed. Thus, the Moraga School District Governing Board unanimously voted to place a $33 million bond measure on the November 2016 ballot. If passed, a bond measure would allow our District to complete identified school repairs and become eligible for millions in state matching funds. Identified school improvement projects include:

  •  Fixing leaky roofs 
  •  Upgrading inadequate electrical systems
  •  Updating deteriorating plumbing and sewer systems
  •  Making necessary seismic retrofit improvements to support student safety
  •  Replacing outdated heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems
  •  Improving student access to modern technology 

All funds would be locally controlled and would benefit Moraga schools

  •  No funding could be taken away by the state or used for other purposes
  •  A Citizens’ Oversight Committee and independent audits would be required
  •  No funds could be used for administrator salaries
  •  The cost of the measure would be limited to $30 per $100,000 in assessed (not market) value annually
