About Measure E
Measure E is the $650 million general obligation passed by Fremont voters on June 3, 2014, with a 61.8% YES vote to modernize neighborhood schools by:
- Updating technology and aging classrooms as well as math, science and computer labs for 21st Century learning
- Upgrading electrical wiring to current safety codes
- Fixing and replacing leaky roofs and aging plumbing and restrooms

All Measure E funding is dedicated to improving Fremont schools. No bond money goes to administrators, salaries, benefits or other operating expenses. All funds are dedicated to improving Fremont schools.
Measure E Funding Oversight – Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee
After passage of Measure E, the Fremont Unified School District Board of Education appointed 11 seats on the Measure E Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee. Members serve either a 2- or 3-year term. The focus of the committee is to ensure that bond funding is “used only for the acquisition, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation or replacement of school facilities, including the furnishing and equipping of school facilities.”
