"WIN WIN: An Insider's Guide To School Bonds" Addresses Funding Challenges Of California School Districts

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As many California school and community college districts consider asking voters to approve a general obligation (GO) bond measure that would raise their property taxes in order to build, repair or equip educational facilities, newly released "WIN WIN: An Insider's Guide to School Bonds" acts as a how-to guide for the complex general obligation bond market.

"WIN WIN: An Insider's Guide to School Bonds" demystifies the complex, often challenging process of a general obligation K-14 bond measure in California and seeks to enable elected school district board members, educational and civic administrators, and members of the public to become more active and involved in the school bond process, by outlining how to plan, structure, pass and sell a bond package.

"WIN WIN is about school districts and taxpayers working together in a way that will benefit everyone involved," said author Dale Scott, president of Dale Scott & Company (DS&C), California's leading K-14 financial advisor. "When executed correctly, the teamwork of passing a school bond can have a transformative effect on both local schools and people's sense of their role within their community."

Scott draws on three decades of work as an advisor to school districts and community college districts, investment banker on Wall Street, financial advisor and campaign manager, to answer the many questions he's been asked over the years including, why some bond elections pass but others fail, how bond deals are put together, tips on selecting the right team of professionals, how to avoid recent scandals surrounding GO bonds, and how to tell if tax rate estimates are accurate or just wishful thinking. 

"WIN WIN: An Insider's Guide to School Bonds" can be purchased at Amazon.com.
