OK, so your plan is to throw out the 300 kids currently at Whisman? Most of them are MV residents! I will certainly vote NO on G!

The district has no intention of reopening Slater or Whisman schools. They'd rather get $300K rent from Google. Instead of having neighborhood schools, parents in the NE part of town can continue driving their kids back and forth to other parts of town where the cozy neighborhood schools will now house 600+ students instead of the current 500+

So much for "small schools, small classes" the district dropped that line from their glossy campaign brochures years ago.
