What’s Next for
Improvements at Rio?
The SJUSD has placed a $750 million general obligation bond on the November 8 ballot
. If you would like to see continued improvements at Rio including classroom and athletic facilities upgrades Measure P
needs to be supported. Proposition 51, the state schools bond, will only provide $50 million to San Juan if it passes with the district’s 2014 facilities master plan identifying more than $2.4 billion in repair and upgrade needs.Rio will not see another penny ifMeasure P
doesn’t pass. We will still get our lockers, upgraded locker rooms, large and small gym improvements, and curb appeal enhancements as part of the $15.2 million in improvements ushered in with new Performing and Academic Center (PAC building
) to be completed by next fall – but then all the progress you are seeing will stop.
Let’s make sure Rio stays at the front of the line for long-overdue and well-deserved campus improvements. Please consider voting for Measure P (see here for more info). If you would like to help fundraise and campaign for Measure P please reply to this email with Measure P in the subject.
