Fresno Unified School District
Edison High School Academic Building
Jones Hall has acted as bond counsel to the Fresno Unified School District continuously since 1991. Jones Hall provided legal assistance in drafting and placing Measure Q on the ballot, and was bond counsel and disclosure counsel on all six series of bonds issued under Measure Q.
The Fresno Unified School District is the fourth largest public school district in California, with over 100 schools serving more than 70,000 students from pre-school through adult education. One of the District’s schools is Edison High School, a magnet school in the areas of math and science, which has an academic ranking among the highest of all high schools in California. In 2010, the District’s voters overwhelmingly approve Measure Q, a general obligation bond measure authorizing $280 million of bonds to improve District schools. A portion of the Measure Q bond proceeds was recently used to help fund the Academic Building at Edison High, which has won numerous awards for its outstanding architecture.
