Measure CC in Culver City Passes

With 100 percent of the precincts reporting, Culver City Measure CC has passed, with 75.85 percent of the votes. A total of 4,848 votes were cast on the measure. The bond measure, which will inject $106 million into Culver City schools, required 55 percent of the votes to pass.

Upon passage of Measure CC, work on the second phase of the athletic field improvements at Culver City High School will begin this summer to maintain the city's eligibility for $7.2 million in future state matching bond funding. The district is also planning significant summer work, including additional portable classrooms, playground improvements, hydration stations, etc. The Board of Education is responsible for deciding what improvements will be done and when.

Overall, the $106 million is intended to address health, safety and maintenance needs, such as:

  • Repairing or replacing deteriorating school floors, walls, windows, leaky roofs, plumbing systems and rest rooms.
  • Bringing schools up to modern standards for fire and earthquake safety, removing asbestos, fungus and other hazardous materials, and install needed fencing, lighting, locks and security to keep students safe.
  • Installing or upgrading air conditioning, heating and air filtration to ensure healthy learning environments.
  • Upgrading and repairing aging school electrical systems, and replacing science labs and equipment so that our schools can offer modern classroom technology and computer science to students.
  • Providing the technological equipment and the modern classrooms necessary to ensure that all of our students are college and career ready.
  • Providing permanent classrooms for our students in the continuation high school.

That $106 million means that each Culver City homeowner will pay .00048 times the assessed value of their home each year -- eg., if your home's assessed value is $600,000, you'll pay an extra $288 each year in property tax.

Culver City Unified School District recently assessed the needs of all the schools in the district and summarized their findings as well how the bond money would be spent in a Facilities Master Plan, which you can read HERE
