This November San Mateo and Foster City voters have a chance to support our public school teachers and students by voting YES on Measure V, which will give our school district a reliable source of revenue to attract and retain teachers and secure STEM, music and art programs in our local elementary and middle schools.
Measure V is a parcel tax that would replace one that expired in 2017 and senior citizens can be exempted. Our district receives less per pupil then most of the districts in our county. We are 14th out of 17 in per student funding for elementary districts in San Mateo County. If Measure V fails there will be significant cuts to staff and programs that will disproportionately affect families and students in North Central.
On Thursday, September 27th, the HANCSM board voted to endorse Measure V which passed by majority vote (9-Yes, 2-No, 1-Abstain). We believe that investing in public education benefits the entire community and we want to be on the right side of history by supporting Measure V.

- Seniors can be exempted from this parcel tax.
- Measure V funds CANNOT be used to pay for administrators’ salaries, benefits, or pensions.
The HANCSM board is comprised of 11 North Central residents who are actively involved in the community and City. The HANCSM board’s endorsement is not a representation of the views of our entire North Central neighborhood or of the HANCSM members.
