2014 Measure C Facilities Bond Passed!
A sincere thank you to all who participated in the successful passage of Measure C. The passage of Measure C will ensure improved facilities and educational opportunities for students well into the future.
Voters showed their support for the Compton Community College District and El Camino College Compton Center by logging an impressive 77.9% yes votes on Measure C. Nearly 16,000 voters from Compton, Lynwood, Paramount and Willowbrook, as well as portions of Athens, Bellflower, Carson, Downey, Dominguez, Lakewood, Long Beach, and South Gate approved Measure C.
The $100 million bond measure will allow the Compton Community College District to upgrade classrooms, labs, infrastructure, and instructional equipment, while making much-needed health and safety repairs and energy efficiency improvements. As mandated by Proposition 39, the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee will monitor spending and report their findings to the public. Every day we see how higher education changes lives. With the community’s support, we will continue to help students succeed by providing excellent academic opportunities to the Compton Community College District.
These updates will enable the District to maintain El Camino College Compton Center as a valuable community resource that provides affordable, local education, increases access to education for all local residents, and prepares students for university transfer or entry to a successful career.
Thank you to the students, employees, board members, community leaders, and most importantly to the voters of the Compton Community College District, for your support of the students at the Compton Center; and for supporting our goal to ensure, "Every Student is a Success Story!"
