Measure T Information

 Information about Measure T

 

The Westminster School District is committed to providing a quality education for all students, preschool through eighth grade.  The District serves the communities of Westminster, Midway City, Huntington Beach and Garden Grove.  Our academic programs have received several recognitions in the past year:

 

  • This year, Westminster School District was one of just 13 school districts in California and the only district in Orange County to be named an Honor Roll School District, a national program recognizing high-performing schools that improve outcomes for students
  • The California Department of Education has honored nine WSD schools with the Gold Ribbon Schools Award for gains in academic achievement
  • Seven more sites were honored as Academic Achieving Schools for meeting the needs of lower-income students
  • The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics recognized WSD as a Bright Spot in Hispanic Education
  • WSD was named a District of Distinction by a national publication for our Vietnamese Dual Language Immersion Program

 

The Westminster School District takes pride in the condition of our schools, yet all of our schools are 46 to 66 years old and have aging classrooms and science labs that need to be updated.  For example, aging roofs leak, which disrupts classroom instruction.  Schools lack air conditioning systems and classrooms often reach temperatures of 80 to 100 degrees.  The Board of Trustees voted to place Measure T, a $76 million bond measure, on the November 8, 2016 ballot to provide local school facilities improvement funding. If approved by local voters, it would help complete the highest-priority school improvements, which include:

 

  • Repairing or replacing leaky roofs
  • Replacing outdated heating and ventilation systems with updated air conditioning systems in all classrooms
  • Constructing a gymnasium at Stacey Middle School for physical education and community use
  • Upgrading inadequate electrical systems
  • Improving student access to modern technology
  • Renovating outdated classrooms, restrooms and school facilities

 

This website will provide facilities updates on the conditions of our schools and the modernization needs to continue to be able to provide a 21st Century Educational environment for the students we serve.   We invite you to provide feedback to the district on our facilities by clicking here (feedback@wsdk8.us)
