I don't mean to say these aren't important too.
They are also not guaranteed if Measure G passes.
All the ballot language says is that PUSD will maintain essential reading and math support programs. Does that mean the Barton reading program will stay as it is today? Does that mean PUSD will not reduce the current number of counselors or the level of music instruction?
How does PUSD define "essential"?
The only "guarantee" Measure G offers is that parcel tax funds won't be used to pay for administrators' raises. But notice what's missing. There is no guarantee that administrators will not receive raises during the life of the parcel tax. There is absolutely nothing in the ballot language that prevents administrators from using general funds to pay for raises.
Many Pleasanton parents have been led to believe that Measure G will guarantee that CSR won't change if it's passed, and all the other items listed that the parcel tax will "save" will really be saved.
That's what PUSD wants you to believe. But it's not true.
