Speak Out!

If you think that it will hurt our schools to allow the City to meet $2.5 million per year or more of its Prop H obligation by claiming the value of services which it has provided to the schools for years (like museum admissions, use of playing fields, or dental care for kids), please let the Board of Education and the Board of Supervisors know how you feel.

E-mail addresses are below. Here is a sample letter you may modify, or use as is, if you don’t have time to compose your own letter.

“I am a public school parent who was overjoyed when voters approved Prop H in 2004, because I have seen firsthand how critical is the need for more sports, art, music, nurses, counselors, librarians, and other enrichments and supports in our schools. I am deeply disturbed to hear of a resolution introduced at the Board of Education which would allow the City to fund $2.5 million of the Prop H “third third” allotment through in kind services, without specifying that such services must be “new”, rather than existing services already provided by the City to the school district. This is not what I voted for in 2004 and would do incalculable harm to our public school children. Please support full funding of Prop H with new money and new in kind services, not existing services.”
