THANK YOU FOR SHELTERING-IN-PLACE: IT WORKED. NEED VOLUNTEER TO BE CONTACT TRACERS TO SAFELY RE-OPEN

Dear PAUSD Parent,

The Palo Alto Council of Parent Teacher Association (PTAC) would like to thank everyone for doing their part on social distancing and staying at home as much as possible. It worked. Santa Clara County residents, including you and me, have saved more than 7,400 lives in our area. By staying home, we made a collective sacrifice that prevented COVID-19 transmission, infections, hospitalizations, and death.

PTAC Asks You to Speak Up Now

BUDGET CUTS COMING ($$$-$)

The City of Palo Alto is asking all residents – including parents, teachers, and school families – to speak up now. Your input will alter the priorities as budget cuts are coming soon. Take a moment to take the survey.

On May 4, the City Council adopted a set of budget assumptions to help inform how staff will prepare the revised Fiscal Year 2020-2021 operating and capital budgets for Council consideration and community input. The City Council selected scenario estimates with a preliminary loss of $39 million in major tax revenues during the next fiscal year.
