2024 School Facilities Update

  • Dear Parents, Staff and Neighbors: 

    My heartfelt gratitude for your continuous support and valuable feedback. Your insights and suggestions from the fall survey have been instrumental in shaping the direction of our efforts to provide the best educational environments for students. 

    As educators, our job at Murrieta Valley Unified School District (MVUSD) is to ensure that our students succeed—whether they pursue college, other professional certification, military service, or a good paying job upon high school graduation.  

    However, I have growing concerns about the condition of many of our 19 campuses. In the fall survey results, you echoed the same concern, highlighting the need to ensure our exceptional standards and quality of education do not diminish. Many of our schools have grown old and several have portables that were intended to be temporary spaces not permanent classrooms. Basic building repairs and upgrades are needed, including the modernization of worn-out science labs to meet current college entrance requirements; and enhancing spaces for career pathways to provide “industry standard career-training experiences”. 

    We deeply value the long, successful partnership we share with our community, understanding that up to 50,000 people interact with MVUSD sites every day. It’s important for you to know that our school facilities' needs are real—and growing. 

    While we have kept up with critical repairs, the scale of needed upgrades, renovations, and new technology far exceeds our state-allocated facilities budget. 

    To address these critical needs, we are considering asking local voters to support a new local school bond measure on the November ballot. The bond we are considering would not increase the current tax rate. Instead, this potential bond would extend the authorization approved by voters 10 years ago and keep the current tax rate FLAT.  

    What do YOU think? Please provide your input by completing and returning the attached response card or taking our survey online by simply scanning the QR code or visiting our website.  

    Please respond by May 22nd. Your opinions matter—we are eager to hear from you! Thank you. 

    Dr. Ward Andrus, Superintendent Murrieta Valley Unified School District
