When and why was Measure R placed on the March 2020 ballot?
On November 20, 2019, the West Contra Costa Unified School District Board of Education passed Resolution No. 43-1920, placing a $575 million bond measure on the March 3, 2020 ballot. The bond program plan reflects the District’s commitment to investing in excellence across all WCCUSD schools so that our schools are safe and clean and every student gets the best possible education. Bond funds can only be spent to benefit WCCUSD schools and cannot be taken away by the state or used for teacher or administrator salaries.
