Measure J was a local ballot measure on the June 2016 ballot that passed with 66.84% of the vote to repair and upgrade the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District’s aging facilities to ensure a safe and modern education environment.
The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) is committed to educational excellence that prepares students to graduate and be successful. LVJUSD schools are among the highest performing in the State of California and help to sustain strong property values in the Livermore community. In 2013, the LVJUSD engaged in a multi-year comprehensive facilities assessment. The facilities assessment identified improvements needed to enhance classroom infrastructure and instructional technology. The facilities assessment also identified energy efficiency improvements and upgrades that could help save on energy costs. LVJUSD solicited and received input from teachers, staff, parents, community members, and the public as part of the facilities needs assessment. Our goal is to provide all students with access to the education and technologies they will need to be successful throughout school, college, and careers of the future. Safe, modern school facilities and technology infrastructure are essential to ensuring student achievement and peak-performing schools.
Measure J funds will be used to:
• Modernize classrooms, science labs and educational technology for 21st century instruction
• Repair aging infrastructure – leaky roofs, faulty plumbing, HVAC, and electrical systems
• Renovate facilities for advanced Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and Career Technical Education (CTE) courses
• Improve safety, including security lighting, fencing, fire safety, and other emergency systems
• Upgrade deteriorated hardscapes, physical education facilities, and pick-up/drop- off zones
• Increase access to school facilities to better accommodate individuals with disabilities.
