In 2012, State Superintendent
Tom Torlakson lifted state
control after the District paid
off its state loan six years
early. Payments to the state
were scheduled to go until
2018, but WCCUSD was able
to save funds to pay off the
loan sooner than expected.
For the last 10 years, our
budget has had positive
financia l certifications
from both
the County
and the State.

The WCCUSD Board of Education


saved the ta xpayers at least $58
million by refinancing several bonds
without extending the payback periods. WCCUSD has
never exceeded the tax rates promised in the bond
measures, ensuring that all have remained wi thin the tax
rate lim itations. As a result of our effective management
practices, we've also been able to leverage $165 million
in state matching funds to help build state-of-the-art
schools across the District.
