About Measure A

WHAT IS MEASURE A?

Measure A is a $194 million general obligation bond program passed by Vacaville voters on Nov. 4, 2014 to address needs for technology upgrades, facility renovation, and new construction for VUSD schools. Vacaville Unified identified facility improvement needs at over $250 million, but Measure A funding has provided remarkable improvements in Vacaville’s aging schools.

AGING SCHOOLS

Many Vacaville schools were built in the 50's and 60's. Older buildings require significant modernizations and the removal of outdated and unsafe building materials.

KEEPING TAX DOLLARS LOCAL

VUSD is working to keep tax dollars local. While VUSD has only accepted lowest responsive bids for each public bid, contractor fairs and local advertising has helped attract more local bids.

As of April, 2019 an estimated 28% of Measure A expenditures to date have gone back to local contractors. Currently, the district has employed local companies like A2R Architects, Lister Construction, Vaca Valley Excavating, Swank Construction, Cal Inc, Vista Environmental, Landscape and Pavers Inc, Alpha Alarm, and Pacific Power & Systems.

39% of Measure A expenditures have gone to general contractors that are union signatories, providing a balance between supporting local business and labor groups.

The remaining expenditures have gone toward toward building materials and tangibles like computers and furniture.
