The Tamalpais Union High School District (TUHSD) will be deciding soon whether to accept a $300 million Facilities Master Plan (FMP) for major capital projects -- mainly at Tam, Redwood and Drake High Schools.

If the FMP is approved, the board will then consider pursuing a $300 million bond offering (estimated to cost each property owner $20/$100,000 assessed valuation annually for 30-40 years). Now is the time to find out what projects are being proposed and to let the board know what you think.

Learn about the Facilities Master Plan and the projects it entails:

- Complete Draft FMP here: For financial summary see pages 58-9 and 71

- FMP Powerpoint presentation (including enrollment forecasts on page 50 showing a near-term enrollment uptick, then returning to current levels) .
