How Has The Measure H Parcel Tax Made A Difference In Our Schools?
The September 2011 issue of Investment Matters http://www.sbsdk12.org/parceltax/newsletters/Investment_Matters_H_September_2011.pdf, a newsletter on the use of Measure H parcel tax funds in our secondary schools, is now on the web. In this issue, the principals weigh in on how funds are making a difference for students in grades 7-12. The four-year parcel tax ($23 per parcel per year) is being used to supplement math, science, and technology education; music arts, and theatre programs at the junior high level, foreign language at the secondary level; and restore ninth-grade math class sizes.
