Bond Measure E

Measure E Facts

Why did the Board of Trustees put a bond on the ballot?

  • - Many buildings on campus are over 50 years old and still being used
  • - No bonds have been adopted for Sierra College since the 1957 bond passed
  • - When the Rocklin Campus opened in 1961, it had about 1,500 students - today over 20,000 students attend
  • - Sierra College trains many of our local police officers, firefighters, EMT officers and nurses
  • - Sierra College is Affordable and Local – by far the most affordable higher education option for Placer County students

The bond funds will be used to:

  • - Repair and bring aging facilities up to current building codes
  • - Modernize 50-year-old buildings so they can continue to be used in the future
  • - Build a new Science Building to meet demand from students
  • - Expand on-campus Veteran’s programs and training, preparing them for jobs in the private sector
  • - Increase training and education opportunities for Law Enforcement, Firefighters and Nurses

More details:

  • - The bond will be for $350 million – for most homeowners, the cost will be less than $5 per month
  • - All funds will be used locally – none of the money will be sent to Sacramento
  • - The bond funds cannot be used for staff or administrator salaries or pensions
  • - There will be local taxpayer oversight on how bonds funds are spent
