One week from now, Benicia schools will be back in session which makes it a prime time for the school board to hear updates on the Measure S bond projects.The governing board of the Benicia Unified School District will be holding its first regularly scheduled meeting of the 2016-2017 school year. As with last year, trustees will receive a quarterly update on projects that were started or completed during the summer as well as future bond projects on the table. The presentation will be delivered by Measure S Bond Director Roxanne Egan.
Measure S is an initiative approved by Benicia voters in 2014 to provide $49.6 million in bond funding for renovation and upgrades of school facilities. Egan will be providing information on the projects funded by Measure S as well as a report on a BUSD Citizens’ Oversight Committee meeting from April 12, which discussed the general obligation bonds.
