The district says a recent survey of more than 400 likely voters found that 67 percent would vote yes on the proposed Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District Classroom Repair and School Safety Measure. 

Nearly eight out of 10 prospective voters, or about 78 percent, said they believe the District has a need for additional funding and recognize the challenges it faces.

For the next 52 years, if the bond is passed, property owners would pay an additional $60 per $100,000 valuation, a $180 increase a year in property taxes for a home valued at $300,000.

Perez has said recently that the last bond issue, approved by voters in 2002, has been exhausted.

That bond was used to install air conditioning in classrooms and dollars did not reach every campus and most school offices, gymnasiums and cafeterias were not included.

In a recent release, the district says that among the top features of the 2014 measure considered by respondents to be extremely or very important include:

-Preparing students for 21st century jobs

-Updating science, math and computer technology

-Improving education at every school in Norwalk and La Mirada

-Repairing classrooms and leaky roofs
