Dear Fairmeadow Families,


This election season, Bond Measure Z will be on the ballot. A YES vote on this upcoming bond measure is very important to PAUSD. There is $460M of funding for our schools at stake.


Measure Z funds will continue PAUSD facility improvements by enhancing school security and upgrading classrooms and labs to meet 21st-century instructional standards.  If approved by 55% of voters, this measure would provide locally-controlled funding for school improvements, including:

  • Ensuring  school  facilities  are  accessible  for  students  with  disabilities  and  equitable  for  all
  • Upgrading  schools  to  current  seismic  safety  standards  to  keep  students  safe  in  the  event  of  an  earthquake
  • Completing  needed  repairs  at  school  facilities
  • Increasing  school  safety  and  security,  such  as  fire  alarms,  door  locks  and  emergency  communication  systems  to  bring  security  systems  up  to  current  standards
  • Providing  classrooms  and  labs  to  support  up-to-date  science,  technology,  engineering  and  robotics  instruction
  • Providing  up-to-date  facilities  to  maintain  outstanding  performing  and  visual  arts  programs


To ensure that this measure passes, we need help from our school community:

  1. Sign up to PHONE BANK October 8th from 6-8:30pm at Coldwell Banker 630 Ramona St. YOU MAY PHONE BANK even if you are not a registered voter in Palo Alto - STAFF and TEACHERS can phone bank too!  Sign up here 
  2. Get a lawn sign! Visit
  3. Participate in a Precinct walk or phone bank on a different day! Visit
  4. MAIL IN YOUR YES VOTE as soon as your mail-in ballot arrives. All registered voters will receive a ballot the week of October 8 and ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, Nov 6, to be counted.

Thank you!
