Funding Our Future - 2022 Bond Information




Measures a1 and A2

Background

In June, the NVUSD Board of Education trustees unanimously voted to place two bond measures on the November 8, 2022 General Election Ballot. The goal of these two bonds is to raise much needed funds for Napa Valley and American Canyon schools. These pages are for informational purposes only. 

Two bonds keeps money local

Although the majority of our campuses require updates, repairs, and continued maintenance, the needs in Napa and American Canyon are different. By creating two different two ballot measures (one for each area), we are ensuring that all money stays local. If Napa voters pass Measure A1, the money would only be used for Napa schools. And if American Canyon voters pass Measure A2, the money would only be used for American Canyon schools. These measures are not dependent on each other. 

Planned Improvements

While there have been significant improvements in the quality of our local schools over the past few years, the fact remains that many of our neighborhood schools are old, with inadequate classrooms, and outdated electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems. The average age of our local schools is more than 60 years and many need significant updating.
 
Measure A1 (Napa area) would authorize $200,000,000 in bonds at legal rates, levying 2 cents per $100 assessed value on a property ($14,000,000 annually). This would average about  $86 per year or about $7 per month.

Measure A2 (American Canyon area) would authorize $25,000,000 in bonds at legal rates, levying 2¢/$100 assessed value ($2,000,000 annually)  This would average about  $86 per year or about $7 per month.


If approved by voters, these measures will:

  • Upgrade classrooms, science labs, computer systems and technology
  • Fix aging buildings and bathrooms, including addressing leaky roofs, broken walls and ceilings and bringing facilities up to current code
  • Improve outdoor spaces, play structures, fields and walkways
  • Renovate, replace or add heating, cooling and ventilation systems
  • Provide classrooms, labs and equipment for career and technology education classes so students are prepared for college and in-demand jobs in fields like health sciences, engineering, technology, and skilled trades.
  • Remove hazardous materials like asbestos and lead paint from older school sites.
