The Measure CC school bond will allow us to continue providing high-quality education and equal access to a 21st-century education.
A Message from Superintendent Eric Andrew
Yesterday, voters in our District overwhelmingly approved the Measure CC school bond and allow us to continue providing high-quality education and equal access to a 21st-century education.
The funds will help us do things like repair leaky roofs, upgrade fire alarms and security systems, upgrade science equipment and laboratories, provide access for students and teachers with disabilities, construct new classrooms and facilities and modernize old classrooms.
Campbell Union School District is truly fortunate to have a community that is so actively supportive of our students, teachers, and schools.
Thank you, again.
