Two school board meetings on possible parcel tax scheduled
There are two upcoming special Menlo Park City School District Board meetings to learn more about the possibility of a MPCSD parcel tax for this spring.
The two are:
- Thursday, January 21 at 7:30 p.m. (Note change from January 19)
- Tuesday, February 2 at 6:00 p.m. (possible action to place parcel tax on May 2016 ballot.)
Both Board meetings will be held in the MPCSD TERC building, 181 Encinal Avenue, Atherton.
At the January 11 Board meeting Superintendent Ghysels and the Long Range Planning Ad Hoc Committee continued their discussion with the School Board on the possibility of renewing and/or increasing a parcel tax as Measure C expires on June 30, 2017.
Following the Board’s initial discussion at its November 10, 2015 meeting, Superintendent Ghysels and staff held 13 informational meetings with parents, staff and the community in December.
The informational meetings included Measure C background information, student enrollment data, District’s financials, and an overview of MPCSD’s commitment to excellence. The Board continued its parcel tax discussions on December 8, 2015, December 15, 2015 and January 11, 2016.
