Dixon Unified leaders optimistic about Measure Q – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

With 17 state propositions crowding the Nov. 8 ballot, including three related to schools, it is ultimately anybody’s guess if Dixon voters will approve Measure Q, a $30.4 million bond to upgrade aging local schools.

Trustees approved the measure in August, after airing a detailed needs assessment, followed by a commissioned survey to gauge voter sentiment, and, afterward, lengthy public comment, pro and con, during governing board meetings.

If it passes, requiring the final tally to reach a 55 percent threshold, the money will be used, among other things, to remodel Old Dixon High, built in 1940, when Franklin D. Roosevelt was president, and renovate Anderson Elementary, built in 1949, when Harry Truman was president.
