Measure M Improvements Continue Across MCSD

As we begin a new year, the Merced City School District would like to provide our community with an update on the major facilities projects that were completed throughout the year, as well as those that are still underway, and those that are next “in the queue.” This work benefits our students by giving them safe, modern learning environments, and we are incredibly grateful to the community for making many of these projects possible through support of Measure M.
