In December 2022, voters approved a $25 million bond to fund school facility improvements. General obligation bonds such as Measure A2 are used to fund projects specific to facilities -- including the renovation of existing classrooms and school facilities, as well as the construction of new structures. Bond funds cannot be used to pay for teachers or administrative salaries.
Measure A2 will:
Upgrade classrooms, science labs, computer systems, and technology
Fix aging buildings and bathrooms, including addressing leaky roofs, broken walls and ceilings, and bringing facilities up to current code
Improve outdoor spaces, play structures, fields, and walkways
Renovate, replace or add heating, cooling, and ventilation systems
Provide classrooms, labs, and equipment for career and technology education classes so students are prepared for college and in-demand jobs in fields like health sciences, engineering, technology, and skilled trades.
Remove hazardous materials like asbestos and lead paint from older school sites.
The independent Citizens Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) is a group of dedicated volunteers who actively review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayer money for school construction.
Thanks to Napa, American Canyon, and Yountville voters, a $269M bond for school facility improvements was approved in June 2016 for the Napa Valley Unified School District.
Since then, we’ve made significant progress in improving school facilities in safety, security, technology, and new infrastructure.

School district performance directly correlates to improved property values. For every dollar spent on public schools in a community, home values increased $20.

Great schools = great communities!
In Napa, this is especially true. Our unique area has a remarkably high rate of young adults who graduate from our schools and end up returning here to their hometown where they contribute to our economy and community. Schools are an intrinsic part of any community and the benefits extend well beyond the campus perimeters.
At NVUSD, nearly all of our schools were built in the 1950s and desperately need updating. We depend on the community and bond measures to finance the facilities and technology upgrades we need to help our students excel and learn in safe, modern environments. As with all California school districts, bond measures are virtually the only source of funding available to us for ensuring our schools are at their best to enable a gold standard education for our students, from kindergarten to high school.
