Pleasanton Schools Receive WAY MORE Money Than Other Districts
Original post made by checking, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Apr 12, 2011
Dublin: Revenue Limit: $5,812, Total Revenue $7,870
Fremont: Revenue Limit: $5,029, Total Revenue $8,083
Pleasanton: Revenue Limit: $5,513, Total Revenue $9,842
San Ramon: Revenue Limit: $4,983, Total Revenue $7,809
Walnut Creek: Revenue Limit: $4,794, Total Revenue $7,334
So except for Dublin, Pleasanton receives more per student from the State. Comparing us and San Ramon, we receive $530 more per student from the State.
For Total Revenue, Pleasanton is WAY ABOVE the others. Comparing us to San Ramon we are $2,033 per student more (and this includes a parcel tax San Ramon already receives). Comparing us to Dublin (which has a higher State Revenue Limit) we are $1972 per student higher.
So without the parcel tax, we already enjoy a significant amount of more funding. With this much extra money coming in, we should not be having financial problems compared to the other districts.
No Parcel Tax is needed.
