    Maintaining Excellence

    in Chino Valley Schools

    Frequently Asked Questions about Measure G


    Q:        What is Measure G?

    A:         On August 4, 2016 the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to place Measure G, the Chino Valley Unified School District Student Achievement, Repair and Safety Measure on the November 2016 ballot.  Measure G will make urgent and basic repairs to our aging schools, improve technology, and classrooms to help us to maintain the high level of academic excellence our schools provide.


    Q:        Why was Measure G placed on the ballot?

    A:         We are proud of our award-winning schools which significantly outperform the County and state average. Our teachers have been recognized as educators of the year on the County and the state levels. But most of our schools were literally built decades ago, with some built in the 1950s, and need basic health and safety improvements. If approved by voters, Measure G will provide the basic improvements our schools need.


    Q:        Will Measure G help improve education in our schools?

    A:         Yes. Full-service elementary and junior high schools are essential to meet children’s basic social, emotional and academic needs.  If approved by voters, Measure G will provide repaired and safe space for before- and after-school tutoring, computer, math and science labs, the arts and physical education, ensuring students and their families get the support they need to succeed.


    Q:        Will Measure G help local students prepare for jobs and careers?

    A:         Yes. Many students take part in our career education programs that train them for jobs in health care, computer science, and law enforcement. If approved by voters, Measure G will upgrade and expand classrooms and equipment necessary for quality job training opportunities, allowing students who do not go to college to acquire real-world skills and compete for good jobs when they graduate. 


    Q:        What basic school repair needs will Measure G address?

    A:         Our decades-old schools require basic improvements. Many have had past problems with lead found in the water of school drinking fountains and faucets. If approved by voters, Measure G will replace rusty, corroded pipes and old plumbing to continue to ensure safe, clean drinking water for students. Other health and safety improvements that Measure G was crafted to address include removing asbestos, lead paint and other hazardous substances, updating fire safety, repairing deteriorating classrooms and fixing leaky roofs.


    Q:        What priorities for our schools will be addressed by Measure G?

    A:         Residents believe strong communities and strong schools go hand-in-hand, with improvements to neighborhood schools strengthening local property values. Top priorities included in Measure G for our schools include:

    • Retaining and attracting quality teachers
    • Ensuring safe drinking water
    • Removing lead from drinking fountains and faucets
    • Repairing leaky roofs
    • Removing asbestos and lead paint
    • Replacing deteriorating, rusty pipes
    • Provide competitive, 21st century learning


    The full text of measure G, including project list, can be found online. Please click here to read the full text of the Chino Valley USD Ballot Measure.


    Q:        How much does Measure G cost?

    A:         Measure G is a $750 million education bond that will create a dedicated source of local funds to repair and upgrade our own neighborhood schools. Measure G will cost approximately $60.00 per $100,000 of assessed, not market, property value.


    Q:        When is the election?

    A:         Election Day is November 8, 2016.  The last day to register to vote is October 24, 2016.


    Q:        How can I get more information?

  • Photo of Chino High Class of 1956 visiting the school library recently Welcome Back!

    Chino High School’s Class of 1956 took a stroll down memory lane on Saturday, Sept. 24, touring their old campus and checking out yearbooks.

    The group attended the Milk Can Game between Chino and Don Lugo high schools at Chino High on Friday, Sept. 23 before attending their 60-year reunion over the weekend. Proclamations of appreciation from Senator Connie Leyva and Assembly member Freddie Rodriguez were read at the reunion banquet held at Los Serranos Country Club in Chino Hills.

    When these alumni graduated, President Dwight Eisenhower was president, gasoline cost 23 cents a gallon, an average price for a new home in the United States was $22,000 and the average yearly income was $4,454. That same year, Aretha Franklin released her first album at the age of 14, Elvis Presley first appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” Buddy Holly was an up and coming singer, and the movie “The Ten Commandments” starring Charlton Heston was released.

  • Illustration of three students with graduation caps with the words Attend Today Achieve Tomorrow. Attendance Works. September is Attendance Awareness Month

    Good attendance helps children do well in school and eventually the workplace.

    Good attendance matters for school success, starting as early as prekindergarten and throughout elementary school.

    By junior high and high school, poor attendance is a leading indicator of dropout.

    Developing the habit of attendance prepares students for success on the job and in life.

  • Illustration of SAT (college entrance exam) logo CVUSD juniors score better

    than State, nation on SAT

    Chino Valley Unified School District 11th-graders taking the SAT in March scored significantly better than similar students statewide and nationally on the standardized test that is widely used for college admission.

    Districtwide, the 2,009 CVUSD 11th graders taking the test (evidence-based reading and writing, and math) had a mean score of 1,005. The State mean score was 965, and the national mean score was 971.

    Chino Valley’s mean score on the evidence-based reading and writing portion of the test was 505. The State’s mean score was 486, and the national mean score was 490.

    Chino Valley’s mean score on the math portion of the SAT was 501. The State mean score was 479, and the national mean score was 481.

    The “new” or redesigned SAT was administered for the first time in March. The redesigned test is scored differently as well as on a different scale, so comparisons between results on this test and previous versions cannot be immediately drawn, according to Julian A. Rodriguez, Director of Assessment and Instructional Technology.

    Participation in the test by Chino Valley 11th-graders greatly increased from previous years because the SAT was offered to all students, the District paid the students’ test fees and took care of the registration process.

    Ayala High had 89% of its 11th-graders taking the test; Chino High, 83%; Chino Hills High, 77%; and Don Lugo High, 64%.

    Prior to the 2013/2014 school year, CVUSD student participation in the SAT “hovered around 45%, consistently,” Rodriguez said. The district’s highest percentage of participation was 48.3% in the 2013/2014 school year, according to Ed Data Education Data Partnership. Participation percentage rates were formerly calculated for students who took the test at any time in their high school careers.

    Now that the district is a part of the SAT School Day program, it can begin tracking participation numbers based on students who take the test that single day.

    Measure M projects

    It is 14 years since the Measure M school construction and modernization bond was approved by voters. In that time, the $150 million bond was leveraged to more than $330 million using a combination of funds from the State Office of Public School Construction, the Deferred Maintenance Fund, and interest earned.  With those funds, the District built five new schools, numerous multi-purpose rooms, a high school science wing, classroom buildings, lunch shelters, computer labs, playground structures, new and renovated athletic facilities, renovated front offices, and performed major overall renovation at several schools. All 30 schools on the original list benefited from Measure M funding.

    Thank you for the support of our students and the Measure M Bond which has now concluded. Below is a link to the book that details the major projects accomplished with the bond.

    Hope to see you at an upcoming meeting!
