Why is an Operational Referendum Necessary?

Due to the state’s inequitable school funding formula and a lack of adequate funding for public schools in recent years, districts like SPAPSD increasingly have needed to turn to their local communities for the support they need. The responsibility to fund our schools is increasingly on local property taxpayers.

Without an operational referendum, SPAPSD would need to move forward with increased class sizes and reduced educational and co-curricular opportunities for our students.
