Thanks to the unwavering support and continued commitment of our New Haven community, Measure M has provided much needed resources for our schools to increase safety, update technology, and improve capital facilities. These improvements directly benefit our students and their learning community.
On November 4, 2014, due to the unwavering support and continued commitment of our New Haven community, Measure M, a general obligation bond for $125 million, passed by more than a two-to-one margin, with 8,962 votes (68.71%).
This measure provides much needed resources that allow the district to keep up with the advancements in technology and capital facilities needs in support of our learning community.
“To continue critical school renovation and modernization projects, replace old portables with permanent classrooms, update school safety and security, improve student access to computers and technology, upgrade athletic facilities, increase the energy efficiency of classrooms and buildings, replace, acquire, construct and renovate District facilities and provide District-wide technology improvements, shall the New Haven Unified School District issue $125 million in bonds at legal interest rates with an independent citizens’ oversight committee?”
