About The March 2020 Measure A Bond 
for EDUHSD Schools

 
In El Dorado Union High School District (EDUHSD), we are proud that local high schools serve the communities of Placerville, El Dorado Hills, Shingle Springs, El Dorado, Cameron Park, Camino and Pollock Pines. Local schools improve our quality of life and protect home values, and our district has served our community for over 90 years. Now, our schools need upgrades to maintain safe, modern learning environments for local students.
 
Some of our local high schools were built more than 50 years ago and serve thousands of students each day. A recent assessment of local classrooms, labs and other school facilities identified many repairs and improvements that would help keep our schools safe and support another generation of students.
 
In order to address repairs and updates in local schools, the EDUHSD Board of Trustees unanimously voted to place Measure A, a $120 million school facility improvement bond measure, on the March 3, 2020 ballot.

Identified Community Priorities for Local High Schools

The El Dorado Union High School District (EDUHSD) recently completed an evaluation of facility needs and resident priorities for high schools that serve the communities of Placerville, El Dorado Hills, Shingle Springs, El Dorado, Cameron Park, Camino and Pollock Pines. Our oldest high school was built in the 1920’s, and our other school campuses are also aging. Local high school facilities serve thousands of students each day.

Classroom and Facility Improvements

The recent assessment of school facilities identified basic repairs and renovations to school buildings as well as outdated classrooms that do not meet current safety or instructional standards for subjects like science, engineering and technology. Upgrades to career training facilities were identified to support vocational education for careers in healthcare, biomedical, computer science, agriculture and skilled trades, including welding, electrical and plumbing.
 

Funding High School Improvement Projects

After reviewing the facility assessment and community feedback, the EDUHSD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to place Measure A, a $120 million school improvement bond measure, on the March 3, 2020 ballot. If approved by 55% of voters, Measure A would provide locally controlled funding to accomplish:
