    Wayne M. Joseph

    Now that Measure G has been certified by the County as passing, we are very humbled and grateful for the support of voters across the Chino Valley community for our local schools.

    Being successful in what has proven to be a very challenging electoral environment, is truly gratifying. As we move forward with the projects authorized by Measure G, we will continue to keep the community updated with audits and oversight to show that ALL funds are going towards the improvement of each of our 35 schools.

    Again, a heartfelt thank-you to our community for their consistently generous support.

    Wayne M. Joseph, Superintendent

  • There have been an exorbitant amount of phone calls, inquiries, and requests for meetings concerning the future of Oxford Preparatory Academy-Chino campus in the last couple of weeks. Oxford has the right to appeal to the County as a result of the District’s denial of the petition. Given the statutory timelines set out in the California Education Code, if the Oxford Preparatory Academy Board of Directors chooses to appeal the District’s denial of the OPA-Chino Renewal charter petition, pending the outcome of the appeal process, the District will be limited in options for the school site for the upcoming school year.

    The holiday season is the time of year we all take time to pause and count the numerous blessings in our lives. This is never more important than this year in which recent events have underscored the seething anger and frustration of many of our fellow American citizens. The time has come therefore, for us to reflect upon the positive occurrences that have affected us.

    For me, it has been heartening to witness, these past twenty three months, the spirit of cooperation throughout the Chino Valley as my team and I met to discuss the facilities needs in our District. This time was especially gratifying in that it reaffirmed how vital and robust our schools are and how they continue to be a top priority for our community.

    No matter the outcome and final results of Measure G, let us never doubt or question this community’s commitment to its schools and its children.

    I hope that you will have some moments to reflect over this past year as well, and may the magic that is so prevalent this time of year permeate your lives and that of your families.

    I wish all of you a very safe and prosperous holiday season.

    Wayne M. Joseph

  • Head and shoulders photo of Superintendent Wayne M. Joseph A message from


    Wayne M. Joseph:

    On August 4, 2016, the Chino Valley Unified School District Board of Education placed Measure G on the November 8, 2016 ballot to ask voters to consider a $750 million education bond to repair and upgrade aging and deteriorating classrooms for safety and technology, to continue to attract and retain our excellent local teachers and educators, and to ensure our schools continue to outperform State and county averages.

    As you may know, most of our local schools were built decades ago – some in the 1950s – and they need basic repairs.  If approved by voters this November, Measure G will replace older plumbing systems and rusty, corroded water pipes found in many schools and ensure safe drinking water.  It will also remove asbestos and lead paint, fix restrooms, leaky roofs and update fire safety systems in our local schools. Additionally, Measure G would be used to provide repaired and safe space for before- and after-school tutoring, computer, math and science labs, and the arts and physical education, ensuring students and their families get the support they need to succeed, and that our schools maintain our high levels of academic excellence.

    Over the summer, an independent community survey commissioned by the District concluded that Chino Valley voters remain very supportive of our local schools and are prepared to support an education bond.  The proposed Measure G requires an independent Oversight Committee and annual financial audits.  By law, no Measure G money can be spent on administrators’ salaries or pensions, and it cannot be taken away by Sacramento politicians.  All funds are required to be spent locally to improve our neighborhood schools.  These fiscal safeguards ensure funds are used efficiently and effectively.

    I am humbled by the community’s support for our parents, teachers, staff and students. The community clearly recognizes that safe, repaired and up-to-date classrooms are important factors to a child’s success. 

    Please visit www.chino.k12.ca.us for more information about Measure G.

    Thank you,

    Wayne M. Joseph

    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?

    A:         To learn more about Measure G or to request a factual community presentation, visit our website www.chino.k12.ca.us  or contact Julie Gobin at (909) 628-1201, ext. 1616 or julie_gobin@chino.k12.ca.us.

    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!
