In March 2020, California voters rejected approximately 60% of the local school bond measures that would have funded upgrades and operations of school facilities (one of the few areas that still offers opportunities to increase revenues at the local level). In the post-COVID-19 environment, convincing voters to pass a bond measure will require increasingly strategic planning, additional outreach, and well-defined facility master plans and needs assessments. In this workshop, we’ll review facilities' funding and financing, present some bond measure history, and provide you with best practices for success. We’ll also review team roles and responsibilities; legal and disclosure issues; tax rate structures and projections; debt instruments; and bond program management considerations, including the role of the bond oversight committee.

Designed for: Chief business officials, superintendents, school board members, and other school business leaders.

Topic(s): Vision and planning for a bond; debt issuance and structure; voter opinion and bond campaign support; disclosures and advice from bond counsel; practical considerations.
