Rick Radin reports:
West Contra Costa school district trustees approved the sale of $125 million in bonds Wednesday evening, including $85 million authorized under Measure E, the measure approved by voters last fall.
The sale is the first of five $125 million sales of general obligation bonds the district plans over the next eight years to replace or rebuild schools. [...]
The rest of the money will help the district get started on several projects, including a temporary home for 46-year-old Pinole Valley High School while a new campus is built.
It will also go to building the new Portola Middle School in El Cerrito and for preliminary work on new campuses for Coronado and Nystrom elementary schools in Richmond and Ohlone Elementary in Hercules, as well as other smaller projects.
