Information Only! General Obligation Bond Measure A

Amador County Unified School District Creating Opportunities for Students

The Amador County Unified School District (ACUSD) strives to provide every student with the tools they need to succeed in college and future careers. Through highly-engaging teaching and rigorous academics, our graduates gain the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in higher education, careers, and society.

Though we are proud of strong student achievement at Amador schools, many ACUSD classrooms and buildings were built more than 60 years ago and are in urgent need of basic repairs and safety upgrades. In order to keep our schools clean and safe, ACUSD has identified repairs and upgrades to broken plumbing and bathrooms, leaky roofs, aging electrical systems and outdated classroom technology. Improving our schools will provide local students with the equipment, technology and classroom space needed to ensure they can compete in the competitive 21st-century economy.

To fund these upgrades the ACUSD Board of Trustees has voted unanimously to place a school facilities improvement bond measure on the upcoming November 2018 ballot. Please follow the link below for more information regarding the general obligation bond measure A.
