 Measure O: The Facilities Repair and Improvement Measure for Riverside Schools

At Riverside Unified School District, 33 of our schools were built more than 40 years ago and five are more than 100 years old. In order to update Riverside schools for student safety and modern education, the residents in Riverside voted overwhelmingly in support of Measure O, which will address needed upgrades, repairs and improvements.

Protecting our schools, the quality of life in our community and the value of our homes is a wise investment in our community's future, regardless of whether you have school-age children.

Funding for Continued Academic Excellence

Measure O will:

  • Improve student safety and security systems
  • Repair or replace aging, outdated classrooms and school buildings
  • Update classrooms and labs for career and technical education (CTE) classes, including health sciences, engineering, technology, robotics and skilled trades
  • Improve access for students with disabilities
  • Retrofit older schools to enhance earthquake safety
  • Update instructional technology for modern teaching standards in core subjects like reading, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)

Financial Accountability Would Ensure All Funds Support Our Schools

Measure O will require a strict accountability system to ensure funds are only spent only on voter-approved projects.

  • No funds for administrators' and teachers' salaries and benefits
  • A Citizens' Oversight Committee and annual, independent audits would be required (Click Here)
  • All funds would support local students and could not be taken by the State
  • Every school would benefit from bond funds
  • The cost to property owners would be $59 per $100,000 of assessed (not market) value annually
