Bond Authorizations

Dear Community Member,

It is an honor to serve as Superintendent of Cotati-Rohnert Park Unified School District. We believe all students are entitled to a successful education, our focus is learning and we are a team. In recent years we have opened a new elementary school in partnership with Sonoma State University, opened a new middle school on the former Mountain Shadows campus, expanded Thomas Page Academy through eighth grade, expanded the Expeditionary Learning Program, created a single grade span for John Reed and Waldo Rohnert Elementary Schools, added a year-round track at Evergreen Elementary, developed a Pathways Program at Rancho Cotate High School and expanded Technology High School.

The Board of Trustees developed a Facilities Master Plan beginning in January 2013 that included extensive input from staff, parents and community members. The Plan outlined approximately $240 million dollars of needs on campuses across the district. A decision was made to develop a bond authorization program in three phases of $80 million dollars. The Board of Trustees, through Resolution 1314-12, called for a general obligation bond election on June 3, 2014. The voters passed Measure B by an overwhelming margin to show support for the district and the specified needs. The projects completed or underway are:

  • Complete renovation and modernization of Thomas Page Academy
  • Renovation of the Kinder Zone at Evergreen Elementary
  • Addition of shelter structures at Evergreen Elementary
  • New safe playgrounds at all elementary schools
  • Design Lab at Technology Middle School
  • Technology enhancement districtwide
  • Safety improvements districtwide
  • Disability access improvements districtwide
  • Exterior renovation and improvements at Rancho Cotate High School
  • Theater/Academic/Gymnasium (TAG) Building at Rancho Cotate High School

The Board of Trustees determined the district was ready to move to the second phase of the the bond authorization program and through Resolution 1516-34 called for an election on November 8 for an $80 million dollar bond authorization. Measure C passed, which will ensure the Facilities Master Plan continues to be implemented. Measure C projects include:

  • Continuing to update classrooms, science labs and libraries to meet modern academic standards
  • New classroom buildings built for 21st century learning and to prevent overcrowding
  • Improved safety districtwide
  • New classrooms for performing arts and vocational education programs
  • Improved disability access districtwide
  • Modernization of elementary campuses and new multi-use buildings

Thank you for your support of our local schools. If you have any questions about Measure C or our schools, please feel free to email me at or call (707) 792-4722.
