Applications now accepted for $159M Measure G oversight
Placeholder Image

Individuals who are interested in serving on the Measure G Oversight Committee are invited to submit their applications for consideration.

Measure G is the $159 million bond approved in the November 2014 elections by registered voters living in the Manteca Unified School District’s 113-square-mile jurisdiction which includes Lathrop, French Camp, Weston Ranch in Stockton, Manteca, and some unincorporated San Joaquin County surrounding areas. The money is earmarked for the repair and rehabilitation of schools focusing on health and safety issues.

Like the independent committee that was formed to oversee the $69 million school bond approved by voters about 10 years ago for the same purpose, the Measure G group will be comprised of individuals representing various sectors of the community — e.g., business professionals, those who belong to senior citizen organizations, parents of Manteca Unified students, active members of Parent-Teacher Community or PTA groups, as well as at-large community members.

Applications for the Measure G Oversight Committee are available at the Superintendent’s Office, 2271 W. Louise Ave., or they can be downloaded from the school district’s website at under the heading, “About MUSD.”

Applications must be submitted by March 30.

Repair and rehabilitation projects that will benefit from the Measure G funds are those that are identified in the Master Facility Plan approved by the Board of Trustees on Feb. 18, 2014.

Planning for rehabilitation projects in the first five schools selected is under way. The schools include Sequoia, Golden West, and Lincoln elementary schools.
