- Measure RR
Measure RR is the School Upgrades and Safety Measure on the November 3, 2020 ballot. The Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education voted unanimously to place Measure RR on the November 3, 2020 ballot to address the significant and unfunded needs of Los Angeles public school facilities that are currently estimated at more than $50 billion.
Measure RR is projected to extend the repayment period for all Los Angeles Unified bonds by four years and is structured not to increase the tax rate that will be in place at the time of the election -- additionally, as older bonds are paid-off the overall tax rate will decrease. Measure RR will cost 2.174 cents per $100 ($21.74 per $100,000) of assessed - not market - property value, generating an estimated $329,528,000 annually until approximately 2055.
