How were projects identified?
Classrooms and school facilities in South Bay Union School District required major upgrades and improvements to meet today's safety, technological and educational standards. School site committees were formed to include faculty and staff, parents, students, community members and facilities experts, who ensured that a comprehensive master plan was developed for each school. Every site committee developed a priority list of projects to be implemented through Proposition X.

Schools were selected based on specific needs and a comprehensive conditions assessment. These schools include:

Bayside Elementary School Nestor Language Academy Charter School
Berry Elementary School Nicoloff Elementary School
Central Elementary School Oneonta Elementary School
Emory Elementary School Pence Elementary School
Imperial Beach Charter School Sunnyslope Elementary School
Mendoza Elementary School West View Earlt Learning Center

How can I be sure Proposition X funds are being spent wisely and as specified?
Passing Proposition X qualified the District for approximately $17 million in matching state funds. Laws governing Proposition X prohibit spending any bond funds on administrator salaries or district operating expenses. Further, Prop X promises that no funds be spent on district administrative offices. Proposition X funds will remain in our community to benefit local schools and residents.

An independent Citizen's Oversight Committee consisting of local senior citizens, homeowners, parents, taxpayers and others was appointed to monitor and publicly report on the expenditure of bond funds, ensuring they are properly and effectively spent on facility needs as specified in the Proposition X bond language.
