It’s an election year, so the quest by the Vallejo school district to get a school bond passed is in full swing.
Trustees will get their first look Wednesday at the district’s newest proposal: Placement of a $194 million school bond on the November ballot.
Bond proceeds would be used to repair classrooms, update science, computer, and technology labs, and improve security, fire safety and electrical and plumbing systems, according to the draft ballot language.
In addition, bond monies would be allocated to the independent charter school Mare Island Technology Academy for site improvements.
District staff estimates the Vallejo City Unified School District requires about $750 million for school facility needs and improvements.
