The parcel tax has been in place since 1989. It's scheduled to expire in mid-2012. The district's board chose to ask voters to extend it this year - but they're asking for more money per parcel than before: $135 a year, instead of $98. Parent Donna Morgan, who chairs the Yes on A campaign, says the extra money will fund valuable programs:
Morgan: "P.E., music, art, technology, counseling, honors and AP classes, career-technical."
The only person to sign the ballot argument opposing Measure A is Don Spano, a Truckee voter and certified public accountant. He says he supports a parcel tax for schools - but he can't support this measure as it's written.
Spano: "It lacks accountabilities for the outcomes of how money is spent. But far more importantly, it lacks accountabilities to students."
Measure A requires a two-thirds vote to pass.
