Parcel Tax - Letter to Parents

Dear Parents,
 
 
Here in the La Cañada Unified School District (LCUSD), our students work alongside outstanding teachers and dedicated staff to help them reach their highest learning potential. Our schools are at the heart of our community and prepare local students with the world class education they need for successful futures. The District’s award-winning schools are among the best in Los Angeles county, making La Cañada Flintridge a desirable community for families to settle in and helping to keep property values strong.
 
With rigorous academic programs and dedicated teachers and staff, LCUSD consistently ranks in the top 5% in state student achievement scores with 98% of our graduates going on to college.
 
Continuing Local Parcel Tax to Maintain Academic Excellence
 
To protect our high performing schools and offset some of the impacts of state budget cuts, nearly 75% of La Cañada Flintridge voters approved Measure LC in 2009, renewed it in 2014 and 2019. Measure LC continues to provide reliable funding to protect the most essential instructional programs for our students. This funding has been central to the LCUSD budget.
 
 
Maintaining this locally controlled funding allows LCUSD to continue to:
  • Attract and retain the most qualified teachers and maintain manageable class sizes
  • Offer advanced educational programs in science, technology, engineering, math and robotics, as well as other programs that help our students get into top, best-fit colleges and high-demand careers
  • Keep our schools safe and classroom technology up-to-date

 

Measure LC requires all funds remain in La Cañada schools, with independent citizens oversight.

Sincerely,
Wendy Sinnette
Superintendent
