The District surveyed our community and held many meetings with residents after Prop A failed.
Consistent responses were:
- Ask for less
- Cut the budget
- Give specifics about how the money will be spent, and
- Tell us what will happen if it passes or fails.
The District listened:
- Prop K seeks a 46-cent increase per $100 in valuation, more than 40 percent lower than Prop A’s 78-cent request.
- The District cut $5 million 2015-2017.
- The District is communicating how the money will be spent, as well as what’s on the line if the levy does not pass.
- While the passage of Prop K will not be able to restore all of the cuts made, it will enable the District to restore teaching positions in critical areas of student need.
