Parcel Tax

In April 2010 the School Board approved a new contract with the teachers. Rather than negotiate realistic reductions in health care benefits to reduce the financial burden on t he district, the Board “kicked the can down the road” for unspecified action later. The board has repeatedly failed to prudently manage the District’s finances. As former teacher in Cupertino, our health benefits didn’t come close to what the Los Altos teachers get. Once we retire, teachers pay 100% of their health coverage. In Los Altos they have over 100 teachers getting free lifetime health benefits. Do we want to provide more generous benefits than other districts?
