Sequoia High School District secures funds

Sequoia High School District leaders are celebrating the passage of a $165 million bond that will help the district bring new technology and more career-skills programs to Carlmont, Sequoia, Menlo-Atherton and Woodside high schools.

Measure J received more than the 55 percent it needed to pass, becoming the fifth bond in a row approved by voters in the past 12 years, according to Superintendent Pat Gemma.

“This is the capstone bond that will allow the district to implement and realize its vision” to create vocational classes for its students, Gemma said.
