School districts are required under California Education Code Section 15278 to maintain
Bond Oversight Committees to monitor bond implementation and inform the public concerning the expenditure of bond revenues.
Voters in Bassett have approved two bond issues – one for $20 million in 2006 and one for $23 million in 2004. Both were among the highest approval ratings of any school bond measures passed in California with 81 percent in 2004 and 73 percent in 2006. The 81 percent in November 2004 was the highest voter approval rate of any school bond issue on the ballot anywhere in California in that election.
The District expects to become eligible for as much as another $19 million in state matching funds.
