Vote to Support Measure O

Vote Yes on Measure O

The Palo Alto Council of PTAs supports Yes On O!  For almost 20 years, our local parcel tax has generated over $15 million in locally-controlled funding to keep our schools strong. This essential local funding is set to expire. 

Vote YES on Measure O, a parcel tax renewal measure that has been placed on the November 2020 ballot to ensure our schools continue receiving critical funding.
