Prop. 1 Facts & Information

Thank you, voters, for supporting our schools!

Students holding signs saying thank you, voters!

Voters resoundingly approved Prop. 1, the Neighborhood School Improvements & Safety Upgrades measure on the Feb. 13 ballot.

A 60% supermajority vote was required to pass the measure; 68.9% of voters said “yes.”

That news gets a huge “thank you” from the littles in the Whitman Elementary kindergarten classes of Tonia Neal, Andi McKay and Madeline Trotter.

Prop. 1 will replace or renovate 11 aging sites, including Whitman. It would also give schools needed building improvements, health/safety upgrades, access to expanded career and technical education, and food from a central school district kitchen.
