PUSD and the city should work together to meet PUSD funding needs. It should be through direct taxation of the residents and not thru Bon Measures. Bond Measures are expensive, time consuming and distracts school administration from focusing on education.

Naveed, I’m not certain you understand how the money works, or maybe it’s how you are stating your desire. Pleasanton taxes are mailed (true for all districts other than about 100 that are/were community funded) to the state and then ground through a formula and sent back to us, with a lot of it missing. The city can’t do anything about it.

The district could try for a parcel tax, but there is some conflict on how those are paid (a $100K house pays the same as million dollar homes). Bond measures can only pay for, essentially, new/remodeled structures.

Am I misunderstanding your intentions?
