RICHMOND -- The West Contra Costa school board expects to vote Wednesday on a proposal to place a $270 million construction bond measure on the June ballot.

If approved by 55 percent of voters, the new bond proceeds would qualify the district for an additional $40 million in state matching funds, according to a staff report.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. at Lovonya DeJean Middle School, 3400 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond.

Trustees also expect to discuss the district's strategic plan and Local Control Accountability Plan, which have been integrated into a draft plan that will be reviewed by a parent advisory committee in March and April.
