COUNTY COUNSEL'S IMPARTIAL ANALYSIS OF BOND MEASURE H

ANALYSIS BY THE COUNTY COUNSEL OF A DUBLIN UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT BOND MEASURE 

     Measure H, a Dublin Unified School District(“District”) bond measure, seeks voter approval to authorize the District to issue two hundred eighty-three million dollars ($283,000,000.00) of bonds at legal rates. The primary purpose of the bonds is to finance school facilities projects as specified in the measure.

     Pursuant to California Constitution Section 18 of Article XVI and Section 1 of Article XIIIA and California Education Code Section 15274, this measure will become effective upon the affirmative vote of at least 55% of the qualified electors voting on this measure.

 California Education Code Section 15100 restricts the use of the proceeds from the bonds sale to items such as building school buildings, improving school grounds, supplying school buildings and grounds with equipment, and the acquisition of real property for school facilities. In addition, proceeds may only be used for the projects listed in the measure. This measure provides that its proceeds will fund projects outlined in the measure (reproduced in the sample ballot pamphlet) that include, but are not limited to: providing classroom technology and computers, updating classrooms at local schools and building new schools. Proceeds may not be used for any other purpose, such as administrator salaries.

     If 55% of those who vote on the measure vote “yes”, the District will be authorized to issue bonds in the amount of two hundred eighty-three million dollars ($283,000,000.00). Approval of this measure will authorize a levy on the assessed value of taxable property within the District by an amount needed to pay the principal and interest on these bonds in each year that the bonds are outstanding.

     The Tax Rate Statement for Measure H in this sample ballot pamphlet reflects the District’s best estimates, based upon currently available data and projections, of the property tax rates required to service the bonds. Thebest estimate of the tax rate required to be levied to fund the bonds is 6 cents per $100.00 of assessed valuation, or $60.00 per $100,000.00 of assessed valuation. That estimate applies during the first fiscal year (2016-2017) after the sale of the first series of bonds, during the first fiscal year (2025-2026) after the sale of the last series of bonds, and at the highest tax rate. The best estimate of the total debt service, including principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all of the bonds are issued and sold is $552,734,750.00.

     The Board of Trustees (“Board”) will establish an independent citizens’ oversight committee to ensure that bond proceeds are spent for the projects listed in the measure. The Board will conduct annual, independent performance and financial audits.

     If 55% of those voting on this measure do not vote for approval, the measure will fail and the District will not be authorized to issue the bonds.

     This measure is placed on the ballot by the governing board of the District.

TAX RATE STATEMENT OF BOND MEASURE H 

Dublin Unified School District Measure H 2016 General Obligation Bond June 7, 2016 

Tax Rate Statement

An election will be held within the boundaries of Dublin Unified School District (the "School District") on June 7, 2016 to authorize the sale of up to $283,000,000 in bonds to finance facilities as described in the proposition. If the bonds are approved, the School District expects to sell the bondsin multiple series. Principal and interest on the bonds will be payable from the proceeds of tax levies made upon the taxable property located within the School District. The following information is provided in compliance with Sections 9400-9404 of the California Elections Code.

     1. The best estimate of the tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue during the first fiscal year after the sale of the first series of bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is 6.0 cents per $100 ($60 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2016-17.

     2. The best estimate of the tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue during the first fiscal year after the sale of the last series of bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is 6.0 cents per $100 ($60 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2025-26.

     3. The best estimate of the highest tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is 6.0 cents per $100 ($60 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2025-26.

     4. The best estimate of total debt service, including principal and interest, which would be required to be repaid if all the bonds are issued and sold is $552,734,750. This estimate is based on the assumption there will be no bonds issued with a term over 30 years.

Voters should note that the estimated tax rate is based on the ASSESSED VALUE of taxable property on the County of Alameda official tax rolls, not on the property's market value. Property owners should consult their own property tax bills to determine their property's assessed value and any applicable tax exemptions.

Attention of all voters is directed to the fact that the foregoing information is based upon the School District's projections and estimates only, which are not binding upon the School District. The actual tax rates, debt service and the years in which they will apply may vary from those presently estimated, due to variations from these estimates in the timing of bond sales, the amount of bonds sold and market interest rates at the time of each sale, and actual assessed valuations over the term of repayment of the bonds. The dates of sale and the amount of bonds sold at any given time will be determined by the School District based on need for construction funds and other factors. The actual interest rates at which the bonds will be sold will depend on the bond market at the time of each sale. Actual future assessed valuation will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the School District as determined by the County Assessor in the annual assessment and the equalization process.

Argumento A FAVOR

ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF BOND MEASURE H 

Vote YES on MeasureH to keep Dublin schools among the best.

Dublin schools provide an outstanding education and families move here specifically for our schools. As a result, student enrollment has increased significantly. We need Measure H to prevent overcrowding so all students have a modern, high quality education.

 MeasureH will ensure that developers pay their fair share to fund school construction costs. Plus, MeasureH will construct the initial phase of a second high school to prevent overcrowding at Dublin High School.

 In addition, some of our schools are 50 years old and need updates to meet current safety codes. Improvements to science labs, science equipment and instructional technology are needed to provide modern classrooms for students.

If we don’t pass MeasureH, the fees charged to developers will decrease by half. In the past, the State funded 40% of construction costs to address growing student enrollment, and this funding is no longer available. We need Measure H.

Vote YES on H

     • Build new schools and classrooms to prevent overcrowding

     • Provide facilities and instructional technology needed to attract and retain the best teachers

     • Provide up-to-date science labs, science equipment and learning technology to prepare students for college and modern careers

     • Replace outdated portable classrooms • Ensure access for students with disabilities

     • Ensure classrooms continue to meet current safety codes.

     • Improve energy and operational efficiency and utilize the savings to support classroom instruction

MeasureH: Local Control

     • Requires developers pay the maximum amount allowed by law to fund school construction costs

     • Every penny benefits local schools

     • Funds cannot be taken by the State

     • Funds cannot be used for administrators’, teachers’ or any school employees’ salaries, benefits or pensions

     • Independent citizens’ oversight and reports to the community are required to keep the district accountable for how funds

       are spent

Join us – vote YES on MeasureH!

Argumento EN CONTRA

ARGUMENT AGAINST BOND MEASURE H

DUSD has already saddled residents with over $500 million in debt,

The root-cause of school OVERCROWDING is new home construction and poorly negotiated developer DEALS. A developer backed bond that perpetuates the cycle of BUILDING MORE to solve school overcrowding is not required for them to pay their FAIR SHARE.

Unfortunately the proposed bond will not deliver the HIGH SCHOOL and other critical solutions that OUR KIDS so badly need.

We CAN get this right. A short pause to get a bond that WORKS FOR US is worth it in the long run.

Send DUSD back to the drawing board and demand a comprehensive plan that putsresidents first, not developers.

Residents OPPOSE this bond because:

IT IS A BLANK CHECK

     • This bond will only cover ¼ of the $800 million plus in facility projects.

     • Shouldn’t residents be in control of our money?

IT WON’T SOLVE OVERCROWDING    

     • It forces RESIDENTS TO PICK UP THE TAB. Is that fair?

IT LACKS ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY IT WASTES MONEY

     • District construction policies REDUCE COMPETITION.

     • Without competition, work is done by the “FAVORED FEW” at a much HIGHER COST.

IT BURDENS RESIDENTS WITH CRUSHING DEBT

     • Our debt service payments of over $1 BILLION, will be one of the highest in California.

     • We will likely not be able to afford another measure for decades.

This is too important to get wrong. Measure H isn’t the solution.

REBUTTAL TO ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF BOND MEASURE H

DON’T BE FOOLED. Contrary to what the District says, a bond is NOT REQUIRED to get higher developer fees. The District would rather HAVE YOU PAY than pursue other alternatives.

The District continues to make COSTLY DECISIONS that are NOT in Residents’ best interests.

We OPPOSE this bond because it:

     LACKS REAL ACCOUNTABILITY

       • There is NO OBLIGATION to build the NEW HIGH SCHOOL we so desperately need. Read the ballot language and see for yourself!

       • No one really knows how the money would be spent.

       • There are NO BUDGETS for projects. We have NO assurance that the District can afford the “initial phase” of a second high school.

     WON’T SOLVE OVERCROWDING

       • Even AFTER SPENDING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS in past bonds, the District has not fixed overcrowding problems.

       • The District makes NO GUARANTEES in the ballot language.

     BREAKS THE BANK

       • With this bond, the District would exceed its borrowing limit.

       • Borrowing limits are set by the state to protect homeowners from unreasonable tax bills.

     FAVORS DEVELOPERS OVER RESIDENTS

     Vote NO until District’s ballot measure gives a prioritized list guaranteeing specific projects at specific sites with real budgets for each.

      Vote NO on Measure H!

Refutación al argumento EN CONTRA

REBUTTAL TO ARGUMENT AGAINST BOND MEASURE H

The opponents of Measure H have their facts completely wrong. Don’t be mislead. Here are the facts:

Fact: Dublin Unified School District assesses the highest level of developer fees allowed by state law for school construction and expansion. These fees are regulated by state law, approved by our school Board in public meetings and all documentation is available to the public.

Fact: Without Measure H, the fees developers pay to Dublin Unified School District will immediately DECREASE by half!

Fact: Measure H will begin construction of a second high school to prevent overcrowding at Dublin High. A second high school is specifically identified in the legally-binding project list.

Fact: Measure H makes urgent repairs and upgrades at our oldest schools in west Dublin. Measure H upgrades outdated classrooms, science labs, and instructional technology, replaces outdated portables, removes lead and asbestos and more.

We can’t wait to upgrade and expand our schools. Here are the consequences of waiting:

     • The cost of school construction becomes more expensive

     • Developers are let off the hook if developer fees decrease by 50% in June

     • Dublin misses the opportunity to qualify for state matching funds

     • Our schools become overcrowded without acceptable solutions available to protect our students

     • Our oldest schools keep waiting for overdue upgrades

     • We put the quality of our Dublin schools and the strong home values they support at risk

Check the facts. Prevent student overcrowding. Make developers pay their share. Vote YES on H.

FULL TEXT OF BOND MEASURE H

INTRODUCTION

Dublin Quality Education and Overcrowding Prevention Measure: To protect quality education with funding that cannot be taken by the State, construct schools to prevent overcrowding; update aging classrooms/science labs; continue providing 21st century technology; ensure classrooms meet fire/safety codes; and improve energy/operational efficiency, utilizing savings for instruction shall Dublin Unified School District issue $283 million in bonds at legal rates, with annual audits, citizens oversight, no money for administrators, and all funds staying in Dublin?

FINDINGS

The following findings have been made by the Board of Trustees of Dublin Unified School District (the “District”) in connection with the placement of this measure before voters.

Local elementary, middle and high schools are among the best in the State. The District is focused on providing a top-quality education to prepare students for college and 21st-century careers. Rigorous academic programs emphasize science, technology, engineering and math. Exceptional teachers, a strong curriculum, safe and up-todate classrooms and the support of our local community are key to maintaining our students success.

Our neighborhoods are desirable due to our excellent local schools. Families move to Dublin to provide their children with an outstanding education. As student enrollment in our schools grows, the District is working to ensure that developers pay the maximum amount allowed by law to construct the additional classrooms needed to prevent overcrowding at some school sites and avoid increasing class sizes.

The District has undertaken a comprehensive facilities master planning process and has formed a Facilities Master Planning Committee (the “Committee”) to help evaluate the facility needs at each school site, including future school overcrowding. Based on this thorough assessment, the Committee has recommended that an initial phase of a second high school is needed to help prevent overcrowding at Dublin high school and better serve the students of East Dublin.

It was also determined that our older schools, some of which are 45 to 50 years old, require repairs and modernizations to meet current safety codes and provide modern classrooms. Improvements to science labs and instructional technology are needed district-wide to help ensure all Dublin students have equal access to modern, high-quality educational facilities, equipment and technology. The District intends to use short term bonds for short life-span items like technology.

Prior to 2014, the State funded up to 40 percent of school construction costs to address growth in student enrollment. With the State no longer providing adequate funding for facility expansion and improvements, the Board of Trustees has deemed it necessary to seek local funding through a bond measure. A bond measure would also allow the District to continue assessing the highest level of developer fees allowed by law charged to developers to fund school construction costs. Without this measure, the developer fees that the District is allowed to charge developers building in Dublin will decrease by half.

BOND AUTHORIZATION

By approval of this measure by at least 55 percent of the registered voters voting on the measure, the District will be authorized to issue and sell bonds of up to $283 million in aggregate principal amount at interest rates not to exceed legal limits and to provide financing for the specific types of school facilities projects listed in the Bond Project List described below, subject to all the ccountability requirements specified below.

ACCOUNTABILITY REQUIREMENTS

 The provisions in this section are specifically included in this measure in order that the voters and taxpayers in the District may be assured that their money will be spent wisely.

Evaluation of Needs.  The School Board has identified detailed facilities needs of the District and has determined which projects to finance from a local bond. The School Board hereby certifies that it has evaluated safety, class size reduction, enrollment growth, and information technology needs in developing the Bond Project List shown below.

Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee. Following approval of this measure, the Board of Trustees will establish an Independent Citizens’ Oversight  Committee, under Education Code Sections 15278 and following, to ensure bond proceeds are expended only on the types of school facilities projects listed below. The committee will be established  within 60 days of the date when the results of the election appear in the minutes of the School Board.

Performance Audits.  The School Board will conduct annual, independent performance audits to ensure that the bond proceeds have been expended only on the school facilities projects listed below.

Financial Audits.  The School Board will conduct annual, independent financial audits of the bond proceeds until all of those proceeds have been spent for the school facilities projects listed below.

Government Code Accountability Requirements.  As required by Section 53410 of the Government Code, (1) the specific purpose of the bonds is set forth in this Full Text of the Measure, (2) the proceeds from the sale of the bonds will be used only for the purposes specified in this measure, and not for any other purpose, (3) the proceeds of the bonds, when and if issued, will be deposited into a building fund to be held by the Alameda County Treasurer, as required by the California Education Code, and (4) the Superintendent of the District shall cause an annual report to be filed with the Board of Trustees of the District not later than January 1 of each year, which report shall contain pertinent information regarding the amount of funds collected and expended, as well as the status of the projects listed in this measure, as required by Sections 53410 and 53411 of the Government Code.

NO TEACHER OR ADMINISTRATOR SALARIES

Proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this measure shall be used only for the purposes specified in Article XIIIA, Section 1(b)(3), those being for the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities, and the acquisition or lease of school facilities, and not for any other purpose, including teacher and administrator salaries and other school operating expenses.

STATE MATCHING FUNDS

     In the event that a modernization or renovation project will result in higher costs than relocation and construction, in order to avoid said higher costs, this bond measure authorizes relocation and construction, and all costs relating thereto, for said reasons or based on other considerations deemed in the best interest of the District by the District Board. In addition, the acquisition of land authorized under this measure includes the ground lease of land and the payment of related lease payments.

     Approval of the District’s bond measure does not guarantee that all of the identified projects within this Bond Project List will be funded beyond what can be completed with local funds generated by the bond measure. The District plans to pursue funds from the State of California, if available, to complete certain of the identified facilities projects.

     The order in which school facilities projects are listed above does not suggest an order of priority. Project priorities will be determined by the Board of Trustees. The District is unable to anticipate all unforeseen circumstances which may prevent some of the projects listed above from being undertaken or completed.
