Measure I Update
On November 3rd, 2020, Bond Measure I passed with an over 80% voter approval of the district's plan to improve our schools to support quality teaching and learning for our students. Funds from this measure will be used to reduce inequalities and improve funding for IUSD schools. Measure I authorizes $240 Million in bonds to provide our students with access to cleaner, safer, healthier, more up-to-date 21st century schools.
Many of our IUSD schools were built in the 1920’s and 30’s, and are deteriorating, run down, and in urgent need of basic repairs. Measure I authorizes a prudent plan with a reliable local funding source for OUR neighborhood schools, while also helping our local economic recovery.
Measure I makes it possible to continue our important school facilities improvement work to:
- Keep schools safe and prepared for emergencies
- Remove asbestos, lead paint, and mold
- Provide classroom technology for 21st century learning/online education
- Upgrade computer, engineering, and science labs
- Improve college and career preparation
- Repair leaky roofs, deteriorated plumbing, gas lines, electrical, and HVAC
- Retrofit classrooms and equipment for social distancing and deep cleaning

Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) is pursuing an ambitious program of facilities improvements, funded chiefly by Measure GG, a $90 million bond measure adopted by the community in 2012. Additionally, more than $30 million was pledged by the Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) for schools that lie along its flight paths for sound mitigation improvements. These two sources of funding are helping to meet the more than $420 million in facility and repair needs we have identified in order to ensure students and staff have access to safe, modern educational spaces that support learning.
Part of the effort includes converting several schools to serve grades TK-8, which allows for better use of facilities and student engagement. In addition to funding from Measure GG and LAWA, the District has received project-specific support from community partners, such as the L.A. Rams, Chargers, and Clippers. The District continues to seek new funding sources for facilities planned upgrades, including leasing of unused property.

Every child deserves to learn in a safe, up-to-date school facility. Our #1 goal at Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) continues to be providing a high quality 21st century education to all students, whether in a classroom setting or via virtual distance learning. However, many of our local public schools were built in the 1920s and 30s and are in urgent need of basic health and safety repairs. All students deserve the same safe, modern facilities that support 21st century teaching and learning and prepare them for college and career success. To meet our growing critical facilities’ needs, District leadership and the locally elected School Board are exploring the option of a local school measure. At the July 29 special meeting, the School Board heard a report on feasibility and public engagement, and reviewed the resolution to place a bond on the November 2020 ballot. Following is the November Bond Board Presentation.
