Board Member Schmerelson strongly believes that since the Board Member Priority (BMP) funds come from bond measures passed by the voters, every one of his 105 schools should benefit from these investments.    We are proud to announce that we have completed the first round of funding for all BD3 schools and are currently working on the second round.  To see all the facilities improvements since 2015, click here.

Board Member Schmerelson takes great pride in ensuring every BD3 school gets his attention and assistance. That’s why he visits every school every year, at least once.  This is how he gets a real sense of the learning that’s going on in the classroom and what schools need, which helps him in his policy-making.  To see videos of these visits and the specific improvements he’s supported, on a school-by-school basis, click here.
