This measure would not raise taxes. Instead it would authorize the school district to borrow money for technology, accessibility, ventilation, emergency preparedness, science labs and technical classes in high schools. The estimation of this bond rate for the school district is $27 annually per $100,000 of assessed value.
It is possible to fully and reliably fund our schools, our emergency and safety-net services and the world where all our communities can thrive. However, instead these resources are lining the pockets of millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations. That’s why we support fair, equitable taxes — for budgets that ensure our children will inherit quality public education and public goods, no matter what they look like or where they come from. Ultimately, we urge you to support California’s Proposition 15, which will reclaim $12 billion per year for schools and local community services from the wealthiest corporations.
