If PUSD/APT did this it would save $4.5M over two years and save how many teacher jobs? This would help Save Pleasanton Schools.

If PUSD/APT did this, it would save classified employees' jobs too!

It's not going to happen unless the parcel tax is defeated at the poll. But the tax will pass due to the likely low turnout of voters and high turnout of supporters of G.

G = Good for Children
G = Good for Schools
G = Good for Community

Usually reading proficiency precedes writing proficiency. Learn to read, or have someone read Measure G to you so you understand.

G=Greedy teachers

G=Goons at the District Office

G=Get a life

I have stated on several occasions I would support measure G if the district agreed to freeze S&C increases (and all forms of pay increasess) for the duration of the parcel tax. As this seems to be an "unreasonable request" in the union's opinion, it is my opinion that Measure G is wrong......guess they don't care about getting a yes vote on G all that much if it means they can't continue with planned pay increases. That alone tells me where the priorities really lie.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
