Neighborhood Elementary and Middle School Highlights

  • Our elementary and middle schools provide students with a great foundation in reading, writing, math and science

  • Our middle schools offer programs such as Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) and Advancement Via Independent Determination (AVID) to help prepare students for challenging academic programs in high school

  • Some of our schools offer “Extended Learning” which provides the opportunity for students to acquire skills through instruction or study outside of the classroom including:

    • Community service

    • Independent study

    • Internships

    • Performing groups

  • Elementary and middle schools also provide “Think Together”, a free afterschool program that provides homework help, enrichment and physical activities

Learning in safe and modern classrooms
Learning in Safe and Modern Classrooms

Priority 1 and 2 needs
Priority 1 and 2 Needs

  • Facilities & Technology Advisory Committee has prioritized the needs of our facilities into 3 categories

    • Priority 1 (Projects that are necessary and immediate)

    • Priority 2 (Projects that should be done)

    • Priority 3 (Projects that JUSD would like to do)

  • Our priority 1 and 2 needs include:

    • Adding/updating Career Tech and instructional technology

    • Repairing aging roofs

    • Safety repairs and updates

    • Energy efficiency repairs

    • Modernizing classrooms where needed

Career tech needs
Career Tech Needs

  • Our high schools do a great job preparing students with the needed skills to compete for college and careers

  • To continue this success improvements to career tech classrooms and facilities are required

  • Needs include:

    • Updating aging science labs

    • Constructing high tech career development labs to support career and technical education

    • Adding computer labs to school sites

Instructional technology needs
Instructional Technology Needs

  • Skills in core academic programs are essential, but technological skills are becoming increasingly important as well

  • Classrooms need to be equipped with the infrastructure and learning technology that supports 21st-century learning

  • Needs include:

    • Upgrading aging computer labs

    • Installing modern network infrastructure

    • Addition of wireless capabilities to provide students greater access to the local school network and resources

    • Adding instructional technology to enhance learning in the classroom

Safety and security needs
Safety and Security Needs

  • Our schools need essential safety and security updates to continue ensuring campus safety

  • Needs include:

    • Updating fire and security systems

    • Fencing repairs and upgrades

    • Door safety lock repairs

    • ADA compliance updates

    • Exterior lighting

    • Repairing uneven and slippery concrete sidewalks

    • Repairing buildings and classrooms with dry rot and termite damage

Basic repair needs
Basic Repair Needs

  • Schools require basic repairs and upgrades to keep classrooms safe, clean, well-maintained and energy efficient

  • Needs include:

    • Repairing aging roofs

    • Replacing cracked or missing ceiling tiles

    • Replacing rusty plumbing, sinks and pipes

    • Replacing outdated heating and electrical systems for energy efficiency purposes

    • Upgrading aging bathrooms

    • Installing dual paned, energy efficient windows

    • Modernizing classrooms where needed

    • Modernizing school exteriors

Planned new development
Planned New Development

  • JUSD is projected to experience the construction of 4,123 residential units within our boundaries over the next 10 years

  • In preparation for this residential development, the District is considering building a new K-6 elementary school in the next 3-5 years in the Wineville and Bellegraveareas

  • Possible need for interim housing while school is being built

  • This would allow students in the new development to attend a neighborhood school, and prevent future overcrowding issues that could arise in our existing elementary schools

School bond a local solution to improve jusd schools
School Bond: A Local Solution to Improve JUSD Schools

  • The District is considering a bond measure to address the needs of our facilities.

  • The measure would provide funds to make improvements such as:

    • Upgrading classrooms, science labs and career tech programs to prepare students for today’s competitive job market

    • Ensuring students have access to instructional technology, labs and libraries that meet 21st-Century learning standards

    • Improving fire and security systems in every school

    • Installing, repairing and upgrading safety and systems

    • Improving access for students with disabilities

    • Repairing aging roofs, replacing old and inefficient water systems and repairing aging bathrooms

    • Upgrading to energy efficient features (i.e., dual paned windows, lighting, HVAC, etc.)

    • Modernizing classrooms where needed

Local control citizen oversight
Local Control, Citizen Oversight

  • The cost of the measure will be determined by the Board in the coming months

  • All money raised by this measure would stay in our Jurupa USD schools

  • None of the funds could be taken away by the State

  • An independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee, representing the community, would ensure all funds are spent properly

  • None of the funds could be used for administrators’ salaries, benefits or pensions

  • Local funding from a bond measure would help local schools qualify for state matching funds when they become available
