Preparing Students for the Future

Rincon Valley Union School District (RVUSD) has a strong tradition of academic excellence, providing students with a high-quality education, preparing them for high school and beyond. Dedicated teachers and staff are committed to developing well-rounded, lifelong learners with the foundation to become productive citizens of their community. High-achieving schools that nurture successful students improve the quality of life in our community and protect the property value of our homes.

Neighborhood Schools Need Repairs and Upgrades

We’re proud of the high quality of education in Rincon Valley schools, but our schools are in need of repairs and upgrades to meet modern academic and safety standards. Over the past two years, RVUSD worked with parents, teachers and community members to complete a comprehensive Master Facilities Plan to determine priority repairs and improvements for our elementary schools. 

This plan is intended to be completed over the next ten years and includes projects such as replacing deteriorating portables with permanent classrooms, constructing new classrooms for science labs and music instruction, renovating outdated facilities at older schools to maintain student safety and upgrading classroom technology to meet current learning standards. Additionally, because of the rapidly growing younger student population, our schools are in need of more primary-age classrooms.  

Dedicated Local Funding for School Improvements

In order to keep pace with academic standards and increasing primary-age student enrollment, the RVUSD Board of Trustees unanimously voted to place Measure G, a local elementary school improvement bond measure, on the March 2024 ballot that could generate up to $66 million to repair and improve local schools. Measure G would cost no more than $30 per $100,000 of a property’s assessed value (not market value) per year while bonds are outstanding. If approved by local voters, this Measure G would:

  • Replace aging and leaking roofs, outdated heating & cooling systems and aging plumbing & electrical systems

  • Upgrade classrooms and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) labs 

  • Update classroom technology for current learning standards

  • Construct additional science, music and kindergarten classrooms

  • Add transitional kindergarten classrooms with bathrooms for our youngest learners

  • Expand classroom space for students with learning disabilities

Mandatory Fiscal Accountability

Measure G requires mandatory fiscal accountability, including:

  • All money raised by this measure will stay local to support students in Rincon Valley Schools and cannot be taken by the State

  • By law, no funds could be used for administrators’ salaries

  • The measure requires a detailed project list, an Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee and mandatory annual audits to ensure the money is spent as promised
