The Carpinteria Unified School Board will discuss several proposed facilities improvements under Measure U at its Tuesday, Oct. 11 meeting, including roofing for the Main School, continued construction of the Carpinteria High School student services building and TVs and wall mounts for Summerland Elementary School.
Measure U was passed in 2014 as a bond which allowed the Carpinteria Unified School District to issue $90 million in general obligation bonds to update its facilities. Many buildings in the district are over 50 years old; so far, more than $65 million from Measure U has been used for infrastructure or technology updates at school sites.
The board is set to accept a donation of $200 from Tinkers Burgers in Summerland to the Carpinteria High School Future Farmers of America program. The board will also review approval for several field trips, including a trip to the Catalina Island Marine Institute for fifth graders, Maritime on the Move for fourth graders and the 95th annual Future Farmers of America convention for the CHS FFA program.
Meetings can be watched in person at Carpinteria City Hall or on the district’s YouTube channel. Agendas are posted at cusd.net. Carpinteria City Hall is located at 5775 Carpinteria Ave.
