Supporters say

For our children to succeed in college and careers, they must be skilled in the use of todays technologies and have a solid background in science, math and technology. Measure J1 will provide technological upgrades to our schools to make this possible.

Measure J1 requires a clear system of accountability, including a Citizens’ Oversight Committee, and independent audits to ensure the money is spent properly – all money to benefit San Leandro children and no money for administrators.

San Leandro children deserve the same educational opportunities as others in the region. Measure J1 will allow us to keep pace. Good schools improve the quality of life in our community and add to the value of our homes.

We all benefit from safe, quality schools. Please vote Yes on Measure J1.

Arguments FOR

Measure J1 has been put on the ballot to improve the quality of San Leandro schools and to protect our communitys most important assets.

Thanks to the generous support of our community, significant improvements have been made to San Leandro schools. New facilities have been built, and seismic safety upgrades have been completed. Substantial needs remain at our elementary schools, however, and they are the focus of Measure J1.

Arguments FOR

Measure J1 will:

· Repair or replace leaky roofs, old rusty plumbing, and faulty electrical systems where needed;

· Upgrade classrooms, libraries, and science labs, to keep pace with technology;

· Provide the facilities and equipment needed to support high quality instruction in math,

science, engineering, arts, and technology;

· Improve student safety and campus security systems, including security lighting, emergency

communications systems, fire alarms, and sprinklers;

· Install heating and ventilation systems at each school to prevent classrooms from being too

hot in the fall and summer and too cold in the winter; and

· Replace aging portable classrooms that are expensive to repair and maintain, with modern

classrooms.
