How can I find out what projects are proposed for my school site?
The Proposition "S" website at www.sandi.net/PropS contains information on site-specific bond projects for every school.

What safeguards are in place to make sure Proposition "S" performs as promised?
If approved, the funds from Proposition "S" must, by law, be spent on our local schools to benefit local students, with nothing going to Sacramento, administrator salaries or district operating expenses. Bond money can only be spent on classrooms, buildings and schools. Annual audits will be performed and an Independent Citizen"s Oversight Committee comprised of local senior citizens, homeowners, parents, taxpayers, industry professionals and others will be appointed to monitor and publicly report on the expenditure of bond funds, making sure they are properly and effectively spent on facilities needs.
