Proposition S Bond Projects

Thank you San Diegans. On November 4, 2008, nearly 69 percent of voters in San Diego passed the $2.1 billion general obligation bond measure, Proposition S. This bond program will provide resources for the San Diego Unified School District to repair, renovate and revitalize 181 neighborhood schools.

Proposition S extends the previously voter approved Proposition MM tax rate ($66.70 per $100,000 assessed value of taxable property), from 2029, to 2044.
