Q:  The kids won't see a penny of the money raised for the bond.  Once the district gets the money, they'll blow it on something else.
A:  School bonds are designated for specific purposes, which must be defined in the bond proposal.  Bonds are for construction and modernization (remodeling).  Measure O proposes to pay off the remaining costs of the Foothill campus constuction.  Measure O funds cannot be diverted for any other purpose, and this will be confirmed by a citizen's oversight committee.  Clearing the construction debt from the general fund will return $1.1M per year to fund instruction and programs for the students.
