The Pleasanton school district is hosting community school tours to offer residents an overview of current facilities and answer questions about Measure I1, the $270 million bond measure on the Nov. 8 ballot.
If approved by 55% of voters, the bond measure would impose a new tax of $49 per $100,000 of assessed value on Pleasanton property owners. The revenue generated would fund updated school facilities and infrastructure, including projects like a new elementary school and modernized science labs.
Tours are open to all interested community members. The next tour will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Pleasanton Middle School, located at 5001 Case Ave., before shifting to Hearst Elementary School next door.
There are also visits scheduled from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Pleasanton Middle and from 10 to 11 a.m. that day at Lydiksen Elementary School, located at 7700 Highland Oaks Drive.
Information provided on the tours will include school facility needs, taxpayer information and items on the approved bond project list, according to district spokesman Patrick Gannon. Tours will be led by school Superintendent Rick Rubino and school principals.
All tours will begin in front of the schools' administration offices. There is no need to RSVP. Transportation will not be provided.
