Hello NSM community!
I’m writing to let you know about the upcoming Yes on Y vote and to ask for your support! Yes on Y is a local school funding renewal that will go before voters on March 28th. Yes on Y will directly impact our schools and students by extending an existing funding measure that currently provides $7 million a year (about $560 a student) to the San Mateo – Foster City School District.
We cannot afford to lose this source of funding!
Since 2010, when voters first approved the measure, these funds have provided critical support for many important education programs including math, reading, science, and writing. The funds also support specialized academic programs such as music, arts and drama, and help to keep our libraries open and accessible to all students. The funding measure expires this year and Yes on Y would renew it for another 9 years!
We know there is broad support for Yes on Y in the community, and among our teachers, school staff, and administrators. We need your help to make sure everyone in the community is aware of this important vote before mail in ballots go out at the end of the month and in the days and weeks leading up to March 28th.
Each school is mobilizing to get out the vote and we are asking for volunteers from NSM to help us make phone calls on the evenings (5:30-8:30pm) of Wednesday, March 22nd and Monday, March 27th, and to walk with us for door to door canvassing on Saturday, March 4th and Saturday, March 18th. Everything you need will be provided, you just have to show up!
Please call, email, or text me if you would like to volunteer, or simply fill out the SignUpGenius form here: http://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm?go=s.signup&urlid=10c0d4eaea92ca0fa7-measure. Feel free to choose any other date if it fits your schedule better!
And please share this call for support with other parents!
We can do this but we need your help!
For Yes on Y,
