Why waste $ 18,000 to call 400 homes? So that is $45.00 for a 3 min phone call and entering it in an excel spreadsheet. I can save the MV Whisman school board some money and lets start a thread here of responses....

on top of the existing PARCEL Tax? NONE...
EVERY HOUSEHOLD in MV has had to scale back spending.... I don't care if schools is schools.... Schools need to also.... I bet private schools are raising tuition in this tough economic environment... Heck 18k could have been spent on a 25% of a teacher instead of this senseless survey......
