Proposition U

By Larry D. Urdahl

Candidate for Board Member; Grossmont Union High School District

This information is provided by the candidate
To better prepare today's students for college and high paying jobs, by upgrading educational technology, constructing science labs, replacing deteriorated portables, rehabilitating aging classrooms/equipment/sites/joint use facilities and improving safety and energy-efficiency
Four years ago voters approved a bond to rehabilitate our local high schools. Significant upgrades have since been completed and today students are benefiting from improved academic classrooms, science labs and job training facilities.

Prop U will make East County High Schools safer and ensure facilities that better prepare local students for college and high demand jobs. The longer we wait to make these improvements the more expensive it will be.

Proposition U will provide classrooms and equipment for Career Technical Education training so non-college-bound students can successfully compete for high demand jobs.

Proposition U will modernize classroom, labs and equipment to meet advance course requirements for college and university admission.

Proposition U will upgrade classrooms, libraries, labs and computers to keep pace with advancing technology.

Proposition U will upgrade heating and ventilating and improve energy efficiency to reduce costs.

Proposition U will improve safety and security on all high school campuses.

Proposition U will construct a new school in the Alpine/Blossom Valley area.

Quality Schools help protect property values and all funds will stay local to benefit East County high schools.
