An important message About Measure A
As you have heard, the CUSD Board of Trustees has voted to place a funding measure on the May 4 ballot. Measure A needs your help to pass!
As a reminder, state funding and current local taxes are not sufficient to prevent the district from making cuts affecting our students. We heard through the board meetings and community townhalls in the fall that in the absence of the parcel tax passing (Measure A), up to 5 schools in CUSD might need to be closed - Stevens Creek Elementary is possibly on this potential list of closures. More immediately, the board levers might result in a range of cuts that impact the quality of our children's education within the classroom.
Every vote is crucial to help this pass, and there is opportunity to help in more ways than voting. YesforCUSD is looking for volunteers to help partner in local events on March 27th and April 24th. Volunteering will have a huge effect on the success of this campaign.
Please use this form to sign up for support, or email us for more information.
