Funding Facilities

MVWSD builds and maintains the types of facilities that our community expects, while ensuring we are good stewards of our community’s investment. The District’s general obligation bond rating is an Aaa from Moody’s and an AA from Standard & Poor, bolstered by its exceptionally large Silicon Valley tax base; a strong financial position with large reserves and liquidity; and strong management.

How capital projects are funded:

  • Measure T, a $259 million bond measure, was approved by voters on  March 3, 2020. 

  • Measure G touched every school with improvements and renovations. Passed in 2012, Measure G generated $198 million to provide safe, efficient, and modern facilities for District students and staff. Measure G projects were completed in 2019. 

  • Certificate of Participation. The Board approved use of existing school-building lease revenue to issue and pay for a $40 million Certificate Of Participation (similar to a loan). The District can use lease, contingency and Shoreline funds to open Jose Antonio Vargas Elementary in 2019, at an estimated cost of $25 million, as well as make other capital improvements such as the new District Preschool and the District Office.  The COP that was approved by the Board was paid off by Measure T.
