With Measure S proponents still basking in the afterglow of a solid election victory, Burbank Unified officials will start laying the groundwork for preparing the $110 million bond issuance the measure calls for.
District staff will meet with financial advisors Friday to construct a timeline that could see the school board issuing the first set of bonds in June, according to Assistant Supt. Christine Statton.
Officials are also accepting applications for interested parties to join the bond's oversight committee, said Burbank Unified spokeswoman Kimberley Clark.
The application period closes April 1 and the committee could have up to nine members, she said. The final members would be announced at the April 18 school board meeting.
The bond was approved with more than 60% of the vote, putting it well above the 55% threshold needed to pass and giving district officials a clear sense of endorsement for improving classrooms they say are in serious need of repair.
