Quality Del Mar Schools, Yes on CC
Our coastal North County communities are known for our great schools. But state budget cuts and aging school facilities threaten the quality of our outstanding Del Mar and Carmel Valley schools. We cannot rely on the State to fund the quality education and modern classrooms our students deserve.
That’s why parents, teachers and community leaders from Del Mar and Carmel Valley are working together in support of Propositions AA and CC on the Nov. 6 ballot. If approved, these important local ballot measures will provide a reliable source of locally controlled funding for all of our local students — from kindergarten through high school.
Given that elementary students in the Del Mar Union School District will graduate to attend the San Dieguito Union High School District, and many of the middle and high school students in the San Dieguito Union High School District receive their elementary education in the Del Mar Union School District, both of these measure are critical for a strong continuum of education for all age groups.
Quality Schools for Del Mar — Yes on CC, the volunteer committee leading the campaign for Del Mar Union School District’s ballot measure, urges local voters to support Proposition AA to benefit San Dieguito Union High School District.
Friends of San Dieguito Schools — Yes on AA, the volunteer committee leading the campaign for San Dieguito Union High School District’s ballot measure, asks local voters to support Proposition CC to benefit Del Mar Union School District.
By voting Yes on AA and CC, residents of Del Mar and Carmel Valley can protect the outstanding quality of education for which our local schools have long been known. And as protecting quality schools also protects the value of our homes, even community members with no children in the district will benefit from the passage of these measures.
