Dixon Unified leaders, when they meet tonight, will hear an update on Measure Q, resolutions in support of two school-related propositions, and a presentation on mental health services.
Superintendent Brian Dolan will update the five-member governing board about Measure Q, the $30.4 million bond trustees approved for placement on the Nov. 8 general election ballot. If passed by voters, it will provide money to upgrade the district’s aging schools, including Old Dixon High, built in 1940, and Anderson Elementary, built in 1949.
Trustees are expected to approve a resolution to support Proposition 51, the K-12 School and Community College Facilities initiative, a $9 billion state bond for new construction and modernization of K-12 schools, including charter schools, and California community colleges. Like the schools in Dixon, Vacaville and Fairfield-Suisun unified districts, many schools in the state’s more than 1,000 districts are 50 years old and older.
