Thank you Santa Monica and Malibu voters — what a tremendous gift to our children! Proposition X, the School District’s facilities bond, passed by over 80 percent of the vote. Some may think — of course it passed, it’s about our students. What many individuals do not know is that school districts all over Southern California have tried and failed at passing school bonds. In the cities of Santa Monica and Malibu we are indeed fortunate — our communities — residents, businesses, parents and students stand firmly behind their children’s education. They believe in what the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District has accomplished in the past, the outstanding education these youngsters receive every day, and they put faith in making the hopes and dreams of the future a reality. The passage of Proposition X enables the district to meet federal mandates for disabled access, add the needed classroom space for class size reduction, technology, child care, science, music and art, repair earthquake damage, and maintain safe and well-kept campuses.
Passing a school bond by such a large percentage is a huge accomplishment. Many, many individuals and groups worked very hard in support of this campaign, the voters went to the polls and exercised their right to vote, and now, our children are the winners. Happy Holidays!
