    The Glendale Union High School District is considering a bond initiative for the upcoming November ballot. A Citizens' Committee has been set up by the Governing Board to study the need for a bond, survey the community, and make a recommendation to the Board on whether there is a need for a bond election on November 5, 2024.

     

    We are organizing public presentations to share information and collect feedback from the community. These presentations will bring together the communities of three schools at a single location. Although we recommend attending the presentation designated for your school, you are welcome to attend any presentation that fits your schedule.

     

    Your participation is valuable in shaping the decisions that affect our students and community.

    WHAT ARE SCHOOL DISTRICT BONDS?

    With voter approval, public school districts may issue bonds (which are purchased by investors) to fund projects that have a useful life longer than five years. Bonds provide necessary funding for the district to make building improvements and large purchases. Examples include building new schools, building improvements (HVAC, roof, and lighting), technology upgrades, school safety upgrades, and school buses and/or equipment. Bonds are repaid over a set period of time.
    Funds from a bond cannot be used for employee compensation.
