A vote for our schools

As a parent of two children educated in San Luis Coastal Unified School District, and a property owner, I urge support of Measure D. San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay and Los Osos are desirable communities due in no small part to the quality of our schools. High-quality public education is reflected in our property values and contribute to the health of our community. Measure D will help us continue the tradition of providing the education our students deserve by improving facilities, technology, collaborative learning and safety. It is important to note that although none of the bond monies will go toward personnel costs, our teachers and staff will benefit as aresult of wellplanned student and staff spaces. Our schools are valuable community assets as adult classes are held at our sites and the public makes use of our athletic fields, tennis courts and tracks.

The education of our children must remain a priority. These are the people who will shape our communities, fix our cars, perform surgery on our loved ones. We are the “public” in public education. Please vote in favor of Measure D.
