Background: Moreland School District believes all students deserve to learn in quality classrooms and school facilities. We have two key priorities: first, to ensure academic success for every student attending one of our schools; and second, to make sure that our school facilities and school grounds are safe, secure, modern, and equipped to provide the best educational environment possible. As part of our commitment to maintaining a high quality of education in neighborhood schools, we’ve spent the past year assessing our school facilities and technology needs from all seven schools across the District. Many of our schools are aging, and we have significant facilities needs at every school site. Unfortunately, the level of school funding provided by the State of California is one of the lowest in the nation. We need local funding to fill in the gap in order to provide facilities that will help keep our kids safe and give them the best possible learning environment to be prepared for high school, college, and careers of the future.

Measure M requires 55% support to pass. A “YES vote” approves funding for the District’s plan; a “NO vote” rejects the plan. All Moreland School District voters registered by February 18, 2020 will be eligible to vote on Measure M.
