Measure V Passes!
MEASURE V PASSES - DECEMBER 6, 2018
On Thursday, December 6, the Elections Office certified that Measure V passed! On behalf of the San Mateo–Foster City School District, I want to thank you for your support of this Measure. This funding will ensure that staff who provide essential programs for our students will continue with their work without disruption. Through this funding, the District was also able to provide an increase in salary for our classified and certificated staff members. In addition, much needed funding will be available for arts and STEM programming and innovation throughout the District.
We greatly appreciate the communities’ support of our students and this investment in their future. We extend a special thank you to the volunteers, campaign contributors, parents, staff, and community members for their endorsement and support of Measure V.
As has been presented, Measure V provides a consistent and reliable source of revenue generating approximately $10 million annually for 9 years to support the following:
- Attracting and retaining excellent teachers and staff
- Providing outstanding reading, writing, math and science programs
- Enhancing programs including science, technology, engineering and math
- Supporting art, drama and music programs
We look forward to working with our students, staff, families and community members to ensure that the implementation of Measure V is a success in every school in our District. As we move forward, a Citizen’s Oversite Committee will be established and the District will provide updates to ensure accountability and transparency.
We firmly believe that strong schools contribute to a strong community and thank you again for your generous support. For more information on the Measure, please visit our Measure V website.
Please join us for a celebration to thank our volunteers and community for supporting Measure V at our upcoming Board Meeting on December 6, 2018 at 6:30 pm. Cake will be served.
Joan Rosas, Ed.D.
