Solar to Shine on DJUSD Campuses
DJUSD is pursuing regional grant opportunities with the Sacramento Regional Air Quality Board for Electric Vehicle charging stations at multiple district sites. Korematsu Elementary and the DJUSD Maintenance and Operations Facility would likely to be the first two sites to acquire these stations in an effort to continue with sustainability efforts within the District.
What's New with the New Preschool Site at the Korematsu Campus?
On Wednesday, February 12, the DJUSD Bond Team held two Community Meetings with staff, administration, architects, community members and neighbors to discuss the new preschool site on the Korematsu campus. General design plans and the location proposal along Loyola Drive were well received. Traffic and parking continue to be points of concern for stakeholders. DJUSD will continue to collaborate with the City of Davis to address traffic concerns around the school and to work with architects to find optimal designs for drop-off and parking. Stay updated with further preschool developments on our website.

Thank You for Measure M
In November 2018, Davis voters passed Measure M, a $150 million school facilities bond measure to upgrade schools for safety and 21st century learning. More information can be found on the Measure M website.
DJUSD Bond Program- $226 Million
Measure M funds, along with additional facility dollars, constitute the current DJUSD Bond Program that together amounts to approximately $226 million. Bond sales will occur over the course of the next four years. In February 2019, DJUSD saw the first successful bond sale that enabled our school District to begin work with the first $50 million of our Bond Program, referred to as Group 1 Bond Projects, to address safety projects, elementary multi-purpose rooms and more!
Group 1 Bond Projects
Bond projects include Districtwide projects such as hydration stations and school campus access improvements and site-specific projects such as new two multipurpose rooms, Emerson/Da Vinci Junior Highs science labs, and Da Vinci High campus renovations and construction.
Group 2 and Group 3 Projects
Groups 2 and 3 Bond projects include Willett MPR, North Davis Elementary MPR, Davis Senior High School STEM Building and Aquatics Center and other projects throughout the District.
