Voter Information Regarding Measure S

  • Vote Duarte Unified School District public schools are the foundation of a healthy thriving community. We focus every day on helping our students thrive. However, our classrooms are aging and were built before the "digital age." Although well maintained, these schools require significant repairs and upgrades after decades of constant use. Meanwhile, today's teaching and learning standards have changed, requiring more and different instructional spaces, and all our schools need ongoing safety and security upgrades.

    Additionally, the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are creating additional challenges for school districts trying to meet current health and safety standards. Over the past years, Duarte Unified School District has received feedback from the community, parents, and teachers on our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), Competitive Advantage Plan (CAP), and Facilities Master Plan. Measure S is the result of these community conversations and provides a prudent responsible plan to address our most critical facilities needs. NO other funding currently exists to repair and upgrade these facilities. 

    Measure S is a school bond measure on the November 3, 2020, ballot seeking voter authorization for local funding to repair and upgrade DUSD school facilities. A "YES vote" approves funding for the District's plan to repair and upgrade schools; a "NO vote" rejects the plan. All voters living within Duarte Unified School District boundaries of who are registered to vote will be eligible to vote on this ballot measure. Click here for more information.

This is the fourth year in a row that Duarte Unified has been awarded this grant to implement the Artful Connections program, which is already in place at Beardslee, Maxwell, Valley View, and Royal Oaks. This grant comes at the perfect time as Andres Duarte is completing adoption of the Leonard Bernstein Foundation’s Artful Learning framework, and the Artful Connections program will serve to further infuse the arts into the school culture.
