MSD Sells First Bonds From Voter-Approved Measure V

In March, the Moraga School District sold $12 million in general obligation bonds from Measure V, the 2016 ballot measure that authorized the sale of $33 million in general obligation bonds. District voters overwhelmingly approved Measure V with support from more than 72% of voters. Proceeds of the Measure V bonds will be used to repair leaky roofs, improve student access to technology, modernize, renovate and construct school facilities, upgrade electrical systems, and make health, seismic, safety and security improvements. In conjunction with the passage of Measure V, a Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee was established.

The District sold its 2017 Bonds during a period in which interest rates were near all-time lows. Rates on the 2017 Bonds ranged between 0.88% and 3.88% for an average borrowing cost of 3.63%. Superintendent Bruce Burns stated, “We are excited to begin the projects approved by District voters in November. Improving existing facilities and building new ones will allow us to maintain the high standards of education Moraga is accustomed to.” Daniela Parasidis, Chief Business Official added, “Our low borrowing cost will allow us to keep tax rates low while maintaining flexibility to sell additional bonds in the future to continue the Measure V projects.” The sale of the 2017 Bonds was unanimously approved by the District Board of Trustees in February 2017.
