AUSD Measure C 2004 (Facilities Bonds)

Alameda voters approved Measure C in 2004, authorizing the Alameda Unified School District to issue $63 million (face value) in bonds to fund facility repairs and maintenance. According to repayment schedules, the $63 million in face value translated to $176 in total debt, payable until 2036, due to the use of Capital Appreciation Bonds, which defer repayment of principal for 10 to 20 years.

The bonds were issued in two tranches, Series A, for $41 million, and Series B, for $22 million.

The school district raised roughly $14.8 million in state matching funds, after the measure was approved, an amount less than the “over $17 million” advertised in the ballot statement.

Measure C (2004) Ballot Statement
To renovate aging neighborhood schools, improve student safety conditions, relieve classroom overcrowding, construct, equip, upgrade classrooms, facilities and sites, and qualify for over $17 million in State matching funds, shall the Alameda City Unified School District issue $63 million of bonds at legal rates, with annual audits and citizen oversight, with no proceeds going to the State and all funds remaining in Alameda to benefit neighborhood schools without increasing existing tax rates?

AUSD Bond Payment Account
In response to a public records request, AUSD CFO Robert Clark provided this file below. He could answer few questions about the ongoing collection of tax revenue under Measure C, and repayment to the bond holders, saying that “The County controls the deposits and withdraws of Fund 51. They would have that information. As a district, we are told the values to insert as payments and taxes collected, and do not have control over those amounts.”
