The Yes on Measure A campaign is underway. Below is some basic information about the campaign.
Measure A is endorsed by myself and the San Carlos Blog.
“Vote Yes on Measure A to maintain the level of excellence in our schools that has brought the San Carlos School District state recognition and rising student test scores. Despite ongoing state budget cuts, we need to ensure ongoing student achievement. That’s why we are asking you to vote Yes on Measure A. San Carlos schools have a strong record of academic excellence because our students receive a well-rounded education that emphasizes math, science, reading and writing skills. Funds from Measure A will help us maintain this focus, as well as maintaining hands-on science programs and maintain literacy programs to help all students read at or above grade level, and attract, train, and retain highly qualified teachers.
Measure A requires continued fiscal oversight. The funds could not be taken by the state and Measure A requires independent oversight and annual audits. No money can be used from administrator salaries and senior exemptions would continue to be offered.
Parents, teachers, staff and community members are coming together to support Measure A. They are showing their support by volunteering to phone bank, donating money to the campaign or putting up lawn signs in their yards. If you would like to get involved, visit the “Get Involved” page of this website ands up for any of the activities listed.
We need 67% approval to pass Measure A and we appreciate your support in getting us closer to success.
On May 3rd, please join us in supporting Measure A.”
