During the 1997 Legislature, the district sought the enactment of laws providing more effective methods of supplementing bond funds for school construction. Assembly Bill 353 was approved in 1997 allowing changes for financing school construction.

In November 1998, voters approved funding for a 10-year building program. The program promised to build 88 schools, renovate existing schools, acquire land for future school sites, and provide two bus yards.

Below are the final projects of the 1998 Capital Improvement Program.
