UPDATED: As of 7 a.m. Wednesday, Measure GG passed 23,956 votes to 3,926 votes, with all precincts reporting.
On the heels of a state takeover meant to steer Inglewood Unified School District out of bankruptcy, a construction bond measure that would upgrade facilities in that district sailed to apparent victory Tuesday.
Measure GG was collecting more than 85 percent of the vote, hovering high above the 55 percent threshold needed for passage.
The measure will generate $90 million to be used on a variety of expenses, including upgrades or replacements of buildings, signage, bells and clocks; improvements of access for people with disabilities; and creating additional classrooms, among many other projects.
In mid-September, the district became the ninth school district in the history of California to be taken over by the state.
This means the district - in addition to the bond money - will receive a $55 million state loan to shore up its finances. The emergency loan must be repaid within 20 years.
As part of the deal, the superintendent lost his job and the elected school board has lost its legislative powers, in essence becoming an advisory body.
In their place is a state-appointed administrator - Kent Taylor, a 1982 graduate of Inglewood High - who serves as a one-person decision-maker.
Already, Taylor has reversed a decision made this fall by the now-defanged school board to cut salaries of teachers and classified staff - which includes cafeteria workers, custodians and secretaries - by 15 percent.
Measure GG comes just several years after voters in the district passed Measure K, which borrowed $130 million for projects that include a new school, the K-8 La Tijera.
