UPDATED: $220 Million Bond Measure Passes

66 percent of voters favored the bond measure for Cupertino Union School District.

Updated 7:20 a.m. Wednesday: Passage of Measure H, Cupertino Union School District's $220 million bond measure, passed with all precincts reporting. The votes remained steady at 66 percent in favor, finishing with 11,433 'yes' votes to 5,945 voting 'no'.

Cupertino Union School District’s bid for a $220 million bond for repairs, new classrooms and technology is holding steady for passage with 55 of 67 precincts reporting as of just past midnight Wednesday.

“We’re pretty upbeat about preliminary results,” said Phil Quon, superintendent of the District earlier in the evening “(The numbers) bode well for us.”

About 66 percent of the district’s voters were in favor of passing the bond measure indicating that schools, indeed, are part of the fabric of the Cupertino community.

“I’ll do anything to help the schools,” said Judy Colloton before Tuesday’s results.

Colloton’s children went through CUSD schools and she said she believes the value of her home is tied to the continued success of the district. She’s willing to sacrifice more money out of her wallet to ensure the district has what it needs to continue on the same path.

It appears that others in the voting district agree with her.

An update reaction from CUSD of the final tally will come Wednesday.
