Grateful for Ojai’s Vote to Pass Measure J

-- Kathi Smith, President, OUSD Board of Education on behalf of the entire OUSD Board

Ojai’s voters gave the Ojai Unified School District a strong vote of confidence with the 68% passage of our General Obligation Bond, Measure J, and they have earned our deep gratitude. Thank you to everyone who voted, and to everyone who will pay this tax over the coming years.

The strength this GO Bond will provide, as financial assistance with facilities maintenance and as a “thumbs up” to OUSD governance, will last for generations. The new board can be sworn in December 9 with financial hope and a legacy of voter approval for district management. The Citizen Oversight Committee can start work with a positive perspective that the community is ready to see facility improvement districtwide.

Those who worked with the ‘Support Measure J-Save Ojai Schools” committee on the phone banks, door knocking, and donations can know that their hard work and generosity were well-received. They did what had to be done, so that Ojai’s voters would understand the needs at our school sites and embrace the local community’s ability to take responsibility for its schools.

I predict that Ojai will see a remedy for the disrepair we were forced to endure while Sacramento took away our financial wherewithal. Ojai will see better school sites in each neighborhood. This will help the teachers energize their teaching of the new Common Core methods and will reassure the students that their work at school is a high priority for the community. 

The last time OUSD had a school bond in 1997, we were able to leverage the funds with matching state funds. Although those funds are not available from Sacramento now, OUSD can leverage the Measure J bond funds with the confidence that comes with overwhelming community approval. The creativity and new thinking by the District staff and school board has been enhanced significantly with the passage of Measure J.
