Measure S Passage

  • Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2020 General Election by casting your vote to approve Measure S. When our Board made the difficult decision to place Measure S on the ballot, we realized it was a lot to ask of our community, especially considering the economic havoc COVID-19 had caused. We also knew, based on all of the feedback we had received, that our needs were significant, and it appears our community agreed. The passage of Measure S has positioned our district to repair our aging school facilities, modernize classrooms and labs, and update technology so that every student and teacher can thrive in a school setting with the safe, modern, creative spaces that they deserve. On behalf of DUSD, I wish to thank the voters for their support.

    Together, we will continue to fulfill our vision, mission, and beliefs.
