Measure A Home


Thank you California City Voters!



The Mojave Unified School District is very appreciative for the support the voters
provided to finish construction of California City High School and Hacienda Elementary
School. Funding from the bond will help the district complete the gym, sports facilities
and student support facilities at California City High School. At Hacienda Elementary,
the funding will be used to construct a cafeteria and a library and will add playing surface
for the students. In addition, both schools will receive the technology infrastructure
needed to allow the schools to use computer technology in the classroom.

The dreams of generations are now being realized because of the commitment of voters
to education and our students.
