Updated information on PTAC Guidelines for Support Parcel Tax Campaign

Post date: Dec 11, 2010 12:52:45 PM

The following information has been added to the FAQ's for the Alameda PTA units. Please keep sending us your questions so we can keep everyone current with this information.

Q: Can we share information supporting the parcel tax on our school campus?

A: No. Political Activity is not allowed on Alameda public school campuses. No political information may be sent home with students.

Your PTA may set up information tables outside your school on the public sidewalks explaining the PTA position on the parcel tax. Individuals may set up or distribute parcel tax (Alameda SOS) information outside a school. (Please do not block any walking or bike paths.) You may need to be prepared to explain if this is information from your PTA or from you as an individual citizen. As an individual, you may wear buttons or t-shirts on campus. Your school may have a policy prohibiting political slogans on t-shirts. The orange t-shirts supporting the last campaign were seen worn by students of all grades last spring.
