Impartial Analysis from Richard D. Weiss,
Acting County Counsel
Approval of Measure G would authorize the Board of Education ("Board") of the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District ("District"), who placed this Measure on the ballot by Resolution No. 14/15-1, to issue general obligation bonds, in an amount not to exceed $375,000,000.

Funds received from the sale of the bonds will be expended on projects within the District for repair and upgrade projects at every school; safety and security projects; and instructional technology and wiring projects. Examples of authorized projects include: repairing or replacing drainage systems, roofs, and walls; upgrading heating, air conditioning, and lighting systems; upgrading classrooms, libraries, facilities, and science labs; repairing and modernizing classrooms and school buildings; improving energy efficiency; providing improved computer labs and technology infrastructure; upgrading physical education and athletics classes/facilities; repairing and replacing bathrooms; improving accessibility for disabled students; upgrading fire safety systems; upgrading and installing new security systems; upgrading emergency communication systems; replacing portable classrooms with permanent classrooms; removing asbestos and lead paint; upgrading classroom and library technology; providing up-to-date technology, data, and communication equipment; and upgrading and replacing computers, hardware and infrastructure systems, classrooms and library technology and teaching equipment. No funds may be used for teacher or administrator salaries or other school operating expenses.

The Board shall cause independent performance and financial audits to be performed annually to ensure that bond proceeds have been expended only for the projects on the Project List. The Board shall appoint an Independent Citizens' Oversight Committee in compliance with Education Code section 15278 no later than 60 days after the Board enters the election results in its minutes pursuant to Education Code section 15274. The District shall create an account into which bond proceeds shall be deposited and comply with the reporting requirements of Government Code section 53410.

According to the District's Tax Rate Statement, the best estimate of the highest tax rate required to fund the bonds, based on the assessed valuations available at the time of the District filing its Tax Rate Statement on the measure, is $60.00 per $100,000 of the assessed value of taxable real property within the District.

This Measure requires a fifty-five percent (55%) vote for passage
