Included in this annual report are highlights and status updates of projects that will prolong the life of the district’s facilities and improve the learning experience of its students.

During the 2013-2014 fiscal year the District expended over $42 million on Measure H projects through out the District. The bulk of these expenditures are related to major modernization and expansion efforts at Cupertino and Lawson Middle Schools. Additionally, Sedgewick, Regnart, Meyerholz and West Valley Elementary Schools were also modernized with Measure H funds.

In April 2014, the District issued $99,995,000 of the $220 million authorization in Measure H General Obligation Bonds, Series B. These Bonds were issued to finance the repair, upgrading, acquisition, construction and equipping of District facilities.

The committee relied on the annual performance and financial audits conducted by Vavrinek, Trine, Day & Co., LLP (VTD), which disclosed no instances of non-compliance with the terms of Proposition 39 or Measure H. The committee is pleased to report that, to the best of its knowledge, the Cupertino Union School District is in full compliance with the responsibilities described in Article XIIIA, Section 1(b)(3) of the California State Constitution.
