The Fowler Unified School District Facilities Bond Measure – Measure J – overwhelmingly passed with over 78% in support. Thank you to the communities of Fowler/Malaga for your support of our schools and students.
The District is eligible to sell $8 million dollars in the first series of bond sales in June, 2017, for the first phase of projects which includes: 1. District pool, 2. All-weather track resurfacing and lighting, 3. Fowler High School Ag Farm Facility, 4. Widening of Walter Avenue from Sutter School to Temperance Avenue, 5. Painting of Sutter and Fowler High and 6. Replacement of play equipment at Malaga, Marshall and Fremont Elementary schools. These projects, as part of the first phase of construction, are estimated to be completed within the next 4-5 years, with several projects starting this summer.
The next time the District will be eligible to sell bonds will be approximately 4-5 years from now, which will be for Phase II projects which are highlighted by the Band/Performing Arts Multi-Purpose Facility at Fowler High. Other phases of construction, which may be eligible for state funds of up to 50% of construction costs include: the modernization of Malaga, Marshall, and Fremont schools as well as construction of a new elementary school. These projects are estimated to take place within approximately the next 12 years as part of the $42 million Measure J Bond.
Thank you again for supporting Measure J and the students of Fowler Unified School District.
