$395 million school bond passes in Pleasanton

Pleasanton voters approved Measure I, a $395 million bond that will help pay for school facility improvements in the East Bay district, the Pleasanton Weekly reported.

Measure I passed with 57.18% of the vote. It needed 55% to win.

“We are both extremely grateful and humbled by these results,” Bill Butler, co-chair of the Yes on I campaign, told the Weekly. “We want to express our heartfelt thanks to the voters, our volunteers and the team we were able to assemble to advocate on behalf of the ‘Yes on I’ campaign. It was an honor of a lifetime to be aligned in supporting our teachers and students here in Pleasanton.”

The money will help pay for gym and theater projects at Amador Valley and Foothill high schools, new classrooms at Vintage Hills Elementary, and other projects. A previous school bond in 2020, Measure M, failed.
