Isom Advisors
Since, 2008, there have been over 440 successful bond programs throughout the State that have improved classrooms and school facilities, upgraded technology, and provided general fund relief.  These bond programs have been successful from San Diego and Imperial counties to Del Norte and Siskiyou counties.  Isom Advisors has worked with nearly 100 districts since 2010 and is the leading financial advisor in assisting districts to create winning programs that save taxpayers money and maximize bond proceeds for District improvement projects.  A summary of the key steps involved in a successful program will be discussed from surveying the community, to campaigning, to selling bonds will be covered.

As time permits we are also prepared to discuss campaign legalities, recent legal developments in the courts and legislature affecting general obligation school bonds, and other financing mechanisms available to school districts such as parcel taxes, Mello-Roos community facility district bonds, and certificates of participation.
