Addressing Needs in the Whitewater Unified School District

On November 6, 2018, residents of the Whitewater Unified School District will have an opportunity to vote on a referendum question that will appear on the regular election ballot. 

The school board decided to take this action after an inclusive process involving community members throughout the Whitewater area. We have engaged the community to help us find solutions that balance the district's needs with those of our local taxpayers. This process has involved:
  • Our Citizen Finance Advisory Committee, a group of community and business leaders.
  • Working with our financial advisor to conduct forecasts and find ways to protect both the district’s schools and local residents.
  • Numerous community engagement sessions, which have been instrumental in the development of a solution that will be placed on the ballot.

The district and board are proposing a solution that allows us to maintain the programs and services available to our students now and in the years to come. We must do so while making the most efficient use possible of the money taxpayers have invested in our local schools.
