Voters Say Yes To Three School Funding Proposals On Central, South Coast Ballots; Fourth Fails


Voters on the Central and South Coasts supported three out of the region's four school funding proposals on the November 3rd ballot.

In Ventura County, the Ventura Unified School District’s Measure H passed.  It calls for renewing the district’s annual $59 parcel tax intended to support academic program, and school technology.

Ojai Unified School District voters approved Measure K, a bond issue for school upgrades.  It needed a 55% yes vote to pass, with the number currently at 61%.

In Santa Barbara County, Goleta Union School District voters approved Measure M.  The proposal got a 71% yes vote.  It would provide up to $80 million dollars for facilities and technology improvements.

But, one school measure in the region failed.  The Cold Spring School District has sought approval of a $7.8-million-dollar bond issue for facilities improvements.  A majority of voters supported it, with a 52% yes vote, but it needed 55% approval to pass.
