Alameda PTA Council Endorses Measure I
Post date: Oct 07, 2014 12:23:5 PM
The Alameda PTA Council has officially endorsed Measure I, the local bond measure on the ballot this November funding AUSD facilities improvements. Deferred facilities funding from the State of California has compounded ongoing budget issues for schools throughout California. Measure I will provide much-needed investment to our elementary & middle schools immediately, and will help fund critical needs for Alameda’s high schools in the near future. Alameda schools face an unprecedented need for facilities repairs and upgrades. The PTA Council supports Measure I as a responsible and timely investment in our community and our future.
