For nearly 20 years, the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) has demonstrated a commitment to honor the trust given by voters to efficiently and effectively manage the Propositions S and N bond programs, resulting in a history of “clean” audits, high bond ratings, and impressive bond transparency performance scores awarded by the San Diego County Taxpayers Association.

The District completed all bond projects as committed to the voters, plus some additional projects as approved by the SDCCD Board of Trustees. Unfortunately, not all District facilities were covered by these bonds. As such, they have continued to age and require repairs or a complete replacement. Planning for a tentative bond is underway, with the Board of Trustees expected to consider bringing a measure before the voters in November 2024.

As San Diego's leading institution for job training – including for first responders, nurses, emergency medical technicians, and, increasingly, for careers in biotechnology, cyber defense, and sustainability fields – SDCCD must continue to provide leading-edge academic and career training facilities and technologies required to be responsive to continuously changing industry and workforce needs.

Many of today’s sought-after positions did not exist a decade ago. The demands of a quickly evolving global economy expose the growing need for new facilities to house advanced job training and educational programs and ensure that SDCCD stays at the forefront of industry needs.

With an eye on student success, each of our colleges has developed a comprehensive Facility Strategic Plan that would advance priorities outlined for academic and career training facilities, safety and accessibility upgrades, energy-related improvements, and facilities designed to help mitigate some of the barriers to educational access and success our students increasingly face, such as affordable student housing and childcare. These plans will be used to prioritize projects to be included on the possible bond.
