LVUSD encourages the community to take to the polls to renew Measure E
Measure E is an existing parcel tax that helps ensure great academic opportunities for everyone by reducing class sizes, providing counseling services for students, and funding for extra curricular programs like arts and athletics. The Las Virgenes Unified School District is encouraging the community to make sure Measure E gets renewed for the next 12 years in order to maintain the district’s top-ranked academic quality.
Superintendent for Las Virgenes Unified School District, Dr. Dan Stepenosky, encourages everyone to vote in support of this Measure:
The quality and very fabric of a community is directly linked to the strength, health and success of the local schools. The Las Virgenes Unified School District ranks in the top 2% across the state and has received numerous awards and accolades from US News and World Report, Newsweek, and from the State and Federal Department of Education.
Support of schools from the community is essential to maintain that strength, health and success. The community has supported LVUSD schools through Measure E for the past 12 years. The $98 per parcel measure brings in $2.3 million per year, which is the equivalent of 36 teachers. Measure E funds class size reduction, counseling services, and extracurricular programs including arts and athletics.
On November 3, Measure E will be on the ballot for renewal. The School Board is asking the community to renew the measure for 12 years to support excellence in education. There will also be three city council elections (Agoura Hills, Calabasas and Westlake Village) and a school board election on the ballot.
Please make your voice heard by voting absentee or by coming out to your local polling place on November 3.
