Thank you to the Martinez community for voting to pass the school bonds Measure K ($45 million) in 2010 and Measure R ($120 million) in 2016. This proves that strong communities build stronger schools. We appreciate the community for their support in helping us build better tomorrows for all MUSD students.

Bond Refinance Saves Taxpayers $45.6 Million

In October, Martinez Unified School District sold the final series of general obligation bonds from its 2016 Measure R Election. Measure R was a $120 million school improvement bond measure to address outdated classrooms and inadequate school facilities that was approved by Martinez voters in November 2016 with 67% voter approval.

For the most recent bond sale, the District took advantage of historically low interest rates due to the coronavirus pandemic and overall economic uncertainty and issued the final $30 million in bonds. Highlights from the successful bond sale include a “True Interest Cost,” or average borrowing rate, of 3.14%, and perhaps most notably, a reduction in total borrowing costs of $45.6 million compared to the original 2016 estimates.

The District is partnering for a second time with C. Overaa & Company for the John Swett Project!

The MUSD Board of Education approved an update to the District's Master Facilities Plan on June 8, 2020. This document, developed with California Design West Architects, provides detailed plans for facility improvements throughout the District in the coming years.
