To acquire land and build two new elementary schools and one middle school to reduce overcrowding at existing schools; repair and renovate Menifee Valley Middle School and existing elementary/ middle schools; fix roofs, heating, air conditioning, plumbing and electrical systems; and improve access for students with disabilities; shall the K-8 Menifee Union School District issue $135,000,000 in bonds within legal interest rates, with independent citizen oversight, annual audits, no money for administrators, and all money staying in Menifee Union School District?

Impartial analysis / Proposal

The Board of Education (“Board”) of the Menifee Union School District (“District”) by adopting Resolution No. 2017-4 (“Resolution”), elected to call an election pursuant to Section 18 of Article XVI and Section 1 of Article XIII A of the California Constitution and Section 15100 and 15624 et seq. of the California Education Code to obtain authorization to issue and sell general obligation Bonds (“Bonds”) in the aggregate amount principal amount of one hundred and thirty five million dollars ($135,000,000).

This Measure was placed on the ballot by the Board of the District.

The Bonds would be used by the District to acquire land for and construct two new elementary schools and one middle school to reduce overcrowding. The Bonds would also be used to repair and renovate Menifee Valley Middle School, and modernize ten existing middle and elementary schools by constructing and equipping facilities, improving security systems, and overall infrastructure and technology. The Bonds would not be used to fund the salaries, pensions or benefits of any board members, administrator, and/or teachers or for other school operating expenses.

If Measure Q is approved, the Board of the District will appoint a citizens’ oversight committee, and conduct annual independent financial and performance audits to assure that bond funds are spent only on the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities, or the acquisition or lease of real property for school facilities, and for no other purposes.

An ad valorem tax would be levied and collected on property within the boundaries of the District to pay the principal and interest on the Bonds.

The Resolution provides that the maximum interest rate on the Bonds will not exceed the maximum statutory interest and the maximum term of the Bonds, or any series thereof, will not exceed the maximum statutory term. The best estimate of the total debt service, including the principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all of the bonds are issued and sold is $211,479,769.

Approval of Measure Q does not guarantee that the proposed project or projects in the District, that are the subject of the Bonds under Measure Q, will be funded beyond the local revenues generated by Measure Q. The District’s proposal  for the project or projects assumes the receipt of matching state funds, which could be subject to appropriation by the Legislature or approval of a statewide bond measure.

For this Measure to be approved fifty-five percent (55%) of qualified voters who vote on the Measure must vote yes.

A “YES” vote on Measure “Q” is a vote to allow the District to sell the Bonds and levy the necessary taxes to pay for the Bonds.

A “NO” vote on Measure “Q” is a vote against allowing the District to sell the Bonds and levy the necessary taxes to pay for the Bonds.

Tax rate

An election will be held in the Menifee Union School District (the “District”) on November 8, 2016, to authorize the sale of up to $135,000,000 in bonds of the District to finance school facilities as described in the proposition. If the bonds are approved, the District expects to issue the Bonds in multiple series over time. Principal and interest on the bonds will be payable from the proceeds of tax levies made upon the taxable property in the District. The following information is provided in compliance with Sections 9400 through 9404 of the California Elections Code.

      1.   The best estimate of the tax which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue during the first fiscal year after the sale of the first series of bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of       this statement, is 0.02997 cents per $100 ($29.97 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2017-18.

      2.   The best estimate of the tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue during the first fiscal year after the sale of the last series of bonds, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of           filing of this statement, is 0.02994 cents per $100 ($29.94 per $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2023-24.

      3.   The best estimate of the highest tax rate which would be required to be levied to fund this bond issue, based on estimated assessed valuations available at the time of filing of this statement, is 0.03000 cents per $100 ($30.00 per
      $100,000) of assessed valuation in fiscal year 2046-47.

      4.   The best estimate of the total debt service, including the principal and interest, that would be required to be repaid if all of the bonds are issued and sold is $211,479,769.

      Voters should note that estimated tax rates are based on the ASSESSED VALUE of taxable property on the County’s official tax rolls, not on the property’s market value, which could be more or less than the assessed value. In addition, taxpayers eligible for a property tax exemption, such as the homeowner’s exemption, will be taxed at a lower effective tax rate than described above. Certain taxpayers may also be eligible to postpone payment of taxes. Property owners should consult their own property tax bills and tax advisors to determine their property’s assessed value and any applicable tax exemptions.

      Attention of all voters is directed to the fact that the foregoing information is based upon the District’s projections and estimates only, which are not binding upon the District. The actual tax rates and the years in which they will apply, and the actual total debt service, may vary from those presently estimated, due to variations from these estimates in the timing of bond sales, the amount of bonds sold and market interest rates at the time of each sale, and actual assessed valuations over the term of repayment of the bonds. The dates of sale and the amount of bonds sold at any given time will be determined by the District based on need for construction funds and other factors, including the legal limitations on bonds approved by a 55% affirmative vote. The actual interest rates at which the bonds will be sold will depend on the bond market at the time of each sale. Actual future assessed valuation will depend upon the amount and value of taxable property within the District as determined by the County Assessor in the annual assessment and the equalization process.

Arguments FOR

Vote YES on Measure Q to maintain outstanding education in Menifee elementary and middle schools.

Our area is growing fast. Crowded schools make it harder for students to learn and reduce the amount of time teachers spend with individual students. Measure Q will build additional schools to keep up with growth and reduce overcrowding.

Menifee schools are among the best in the County, and Measure Q will ensure that our classrooms, labs and school facilities continue to support high student achievement. Strong schools make Menifee a desirable place to live. Whether or not you have school-age children, protecting the quality of our schools, the quality of life in our community and the value of our homes is a wise investment.

Vote YES to:

     • Acquire land and build two new elementary schools and one new middle school to keep up with growth and reduce overcrowding at existing schools

     • Improve access to school facilities for students with disabilities

     • Upgrade heating, air conditioning, ventilation, insulation, doors and windows to increase energy efficiency and save money 

     • Complete major repairs and renovations at Menifee Valley Middle School, and make priority repairs at existing elementary schools

     • Fix roofs, plumbing and electrical systems

Local Funds for Menifee Students:

     • All of the money raised by Measure Q must be spent in Menifee Union School District to support our students — no funds can be spent in Perris or any other school districts

     • No funds can be taken by the State or used for other purposes

     • Measure Q requires a clear system of accountability, including a Citizens’ Oversight Committee and annual independent audits to ensure funds are spent properly

     • By law, no money from Measure Q can be used for administration, salaries or benefits

Join business, community and elected leaders, parents and teachers
— vote YES on Q to keep Menifee Union School District elementary and middle schools strong.

The Governing Board of the District (the “Board”) has identified detailed facilities needs of the District and has determined which projects to finance from a local bond at this time. The Board has certified that it has evaluated safety, class size reduction, enrollment growth, and information technology needs in developing the Bond Project List shown below.

      Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee. The Board shall establish an Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee under Education Code Section 15278 and following to ensure that bond proceeds are expended only on the school facilities projects listed below. The committee will be established within 60 days of the date when the results of the election appear in the minutes of the Board.

     Financial Audits. The Board shall conduct an annual, independent financial audit of the bond proceeds until all of those proceeds have been spent for the school facilities projects listed below.

As required by Section 53410 of the Government Code, (1) the specific purpose of the bonds is set forth in this Full Text of the Measure, (2) the proceeds from the sale of the bonds will be used only for the purposes specified in this measure, and not for any other purpose, (3) the proceeds of the bonds, when and if issued, will be deposited into a building fund to be held by the Riverside County Treasurer, as required by the California Education Code, and (4) the Superintendent of the District shall cause an annual report to be filed with the Board of the District not later than January 1 of each year, which shall contain pertinent information regarding the amount of funds collected and expended, as well as the status of the projects listed in this measure, as required by Sections 53410 and 53411 of the Government Code.

NO TEACHER OR ADMINISTRATOR SALARIES

Proceeds from the sale of bonds authorized by this measure shall be used only for the purposes specified in Article XIII A, Section 1(b)(3), those being for the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities, and not for any other purpose, including teacher and administrator salaries and other school operating expenses.

BOND PROJECT LIST

     Scope of Projects. Bond proceeds will be expended to modernize, replace, renovate, acquire, install, equip, furnish, and otherwise improve educational technology equipment projects and supporting systems and software within the District. Projects which are described below include all related and incidental costs, including their share of the costs of the election and bond issuance and costs of design, engineering, architect and other professional services, inspections, site preparation, utilities, and other planning, legal, accounting and similar costs, independent annual financial and performance audits, a customary contingency, and other costs incidental to and necessary for completion of the listed projects.

     Bond proceeds may also be expended to acquire equipment in any classroom or other educational facility within the District. The District may alter the scope and nature of any of the specific projects that are described below as required by conditions that arise over time.

     Whenever specific items are included in the following list, they are presented to provide examples and are not intended to limit the generality of the broader description of authorized projects. The order in which particular projects are listed is not intended to indicate priority for funding or completion.

     The Bond Project List below lists the specific projects the District proposes to finance with proceeds of the bonds. The Bond Project List shall be considered a part of the bond proposition and shall be reproduced in any official document required to contain the full statement of the bond proposition. Listed projects will be completed as needed at a particular school or facility site according to Board-established priorities, and the order in which such projects appear on the Bond Project List is not an indication of priority for funding or completion. Each project is assumed to include its share of costs of the election and bond issuance, construction-related costs, such as project and construction management, architectural, engineering, inspection and similar planning and testing costs, demolition and interim housing costs, legal, accounting and similar fees, costs related to the independent annual financial and performance audits, a contingency for unforeseen design and construction costs, and other costs incidental to and necessary for completion of the listed projects (whether the related work is performed by the District or third parties). The final cost of each project will be determined as plans are finalized, construction bids are awarded, and projects are completed. In addition, certain construction funds expected from non-bond sources have not yet been secured. Therefore, the Board cannot guarantee that the bonds will provide sufficient funds to allow completion of all listed projects. Alternatively, if the District obtains unexpected funds from non-bond sources with respect to listed projects, such projects may be enhanced, supplemented or expanded to the extent of such funds. Some projects may be subject to further government approvals, including by State officials and boards and/or local environmental or agency approval. Inclusion of a project on the Bond Project list is not a guarantee that the project will be completed.

     The specific projects authorized to be financed with proceeds of the bonds under this proposition are as follows:
