When Vacaville Unified School District students return for classes Aug. 18, many will be returning to campuses that did not look the same as they did in the spring.
These include upgraded technology in the classrooms, new rooms and — in the case of Buckingham Collegiate Charter Academy — a completely remodeled campus.
All of this is a result of Measure A, a $194 million bond approved by Vacaville voters in 2014 for educational improvements at VUSD sites. Among the larger projects completed so far are a pair of new two-story buildings at Vacaville High School, a new stadium at Will C. Wood High School, modernization of Willis Jepson Middle School’s campus and increased technology availability at all sites.
