Letter from the Superintendent of Paso Robles Joint Unified School District Chris Williams
–Chris Williams, Superintendent of the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District, submitted the following letter to the people of Paso Robles for voting in favor of Measure M, a $95 million general obligation bond that will go to fund repairs and improvements to Paso Robles public schools:
Dear Paso Robles Community,
The passage of Measure M marks a historic day for the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District. Thanks to the residents of our community, our district has been provided with an opportunity to enhance and improve the learning environment that our students expect and deserve. I want to sincerely thank everyone for putting their trust in PRJUSD and I assure you that we will continue to focus our purpose and passion on the success of every student. Thank you to the many people who put in so much of their time, energy, and effort to make this a reality.
Special thanks to Tara Quinn, our committee chair, and the Measure M team that came together, believed in the purpose and mission of Measure M, and demonstrated amazing teamwork and effort.
This bond issue allows our district to make significant renovations to the K-8 schools including basic health and safety improvements such as repairing leaky roofs and retrofitting for earthquake safety, replacing aging portables with permanent buildings, installing STEAM labs and career technical and vocational education classrooms, and building an aquatics complex. For a detailed description of the projects at each school site, I invite you to look over our District Facilities Master Plan on our website.
Our next step is to put together a Citizens’ Oversight Committee in January to help ensure that funds are being spent responsibly. I look forward to working with the committee, the school board, our staff, and parents to continue to make Paso Robles Joint Unified School District the district of excellence.
Superintendent, Paso Robles Joint Unified School District
