To attract and retain highly qualified teachers, and to continue programs to improve core education in our local schools, particularly in math, science, technology and the arts, support manageable class sizes and school libraries, shall the San Leandro Unified School District renew its existing parcel tax for 14 years at a rate of $78 per year, with an exemption for seniors, independent fiscal oversight, no money for administration, and all money benefiting San Leandro students?

What is this proposal?

Measure Details — Official information about this measure

YES vote means

For the last five years, the San Leandro community has supported our schools with a small local parcel tax to fund core academic programs in math, science, technology, and the arts, and to maintain manageable class sizes. Measure B will continue this critical funding that is due to expire.

 

This assessment, one of the smallest in the state, is about $6 a month. Seniors, as before, are exempt.

 

Measure B provides funding for the recruitment and retention of highly qualified teachers and staff, school libraries, and important educational programs.

 

Due in part to community support, the San Leandro Unified School District continues to make strides to improve the quality of education. The continued improvement of our local schools is the number one reason young families choose to live in San Leandro. Quality neighborhood schools help to maintain and improve local property values.

 

Even if you do not have school age-children, support of this measure is a wise investment. Measure B funds can only be spent on programs listed in the measure and approved by voters. NO funds can be taken away by the State or used to pay administratorsʼ salaries. Every penny raised will be used for students in our local schools.

 

Mandatory annual independent audits will ensure a clear system of fiscal accountability.

 

San Leandro seniors, community leaders, parents, teachers and business leaders support Measure B.

 

Measure B is essential to maintain and improve the quality of our local public schools.

NO vote means

A no vote will allow this funding from the parcel tax of 14 years to expire.
