Thanks to all who provided support for Prop CC

When the election was certified on Dec. 4, Prop CC missed approval by 130 “yes” votes.  Divided by eight schools, that’s a little more than 16 voters per school.  It was very close.

Those of us who worked for its passage would like to thank all who helped.  Teachers, principals, administrators, staff, parents, residents, business owners, PTAs, and others gave hours of their time and money out of their wallets.  It is no small thing to give to one’s community.  Indeed, it’s what gives a community its character and worth.

We’re thankful that Prop AA passed. Our community will see a new middle school, among other improvements.  Voters across San Dieguito Union High School District’s boundary area opted for local control over local funds for local schools.  Everyone will benefit.

There is more hard work ahead. We have some real challenges now as budgets are decided and tough decisions are made. We hope for a unified approach and forward-thinking ideas. We need an engaged community to attend school board meetings, to get involved with their local PTAs, and to support the work of the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation. We hope the community comes together to work on behalf of the kids and the schools they learn in.
