Text of measure
The question on the ballot:
|Shall the Gann Appropriations Limit increase approved by the Oak Grove School District voters in 1991 be continued for four years, allowing the District to continue to expend funds generated by the existing special tax of $68 per parcel for remedial services, repair of school buildings and grounds, purchase of instructional supplies and equipment, installation of energy conservation equipment, and restoration of services reduced in prior years in the library, counseling, custodial and maintenance areas?|
The San Jose Mercury News endorsed a "yes" vote on Measure C, saying, "Oak Grove has lost $10 million in state funding over the past four years. The $1.5 million from the parcel tax covers library covers clerks, middle school counseling, instructional materials and writing and math programs — all badly needed."
