Tuesday is Election Day!
If you are a registered voter, please remember to vote YES on Proposition 13 of 2020 and MAIL IN your ballot by no later than March 3!
Please look for the Proposition called the Public Preschool, K-12, and College Health and Safety Bond Act of 2020 (also known as Proposition 13 of 2020). If passed by a simple majority of voters, it will raise $9 billion for K-12 public schools and $2 billion for each of California's college systems (UC, CSU, Community Colleges) to construct and modernize school facilities. It is a school facilities bond measure (not a parcel tax) and does not affect your local property taxes.
Note: This bond measure is unrelated to Prop. 13 of 1978 and also unrelated to the “split-roll” initiative to revise Prop. 13 of 1978 for corporations which is on the November 2020 ballot.
The California State PTA strongly encourages you to vote for this bond measure in March. Click here to read more about it on the CAPTA website – you'll find a summary of the measure and links to useful documents, including the full text of the measure and the California State PTA Study Committee Report. See attached FAQ to learn more.
