Local Funding Measures for 21st-Century Schools

Although some SMMUSD schools and classrooms have been modernized, many others have not, and there is more to do to support 21st-century learning and improve safety in all our neighborhood schools. In order to address these needs and provide maximum local control to Malibu and Santa Monica in determining the use of each community's funds, the District has created two School Facility Improvement Districts ("SFIDs") and placed two separate bond measures on the November 6, 2018 ballot for Santa Monica and Malibu voters to consider.
