Why are there 4 elementary school districts serving Menlo Park, Portola Valley and Woodside with a total of 9 Schools?? There seems to be a bond measure every election year to support the schools, but if these four school districts were reduced to one, eliminate 3 administrations, how much money could be saved? More money is not needed, manage the money you have in a more fiduciary manner and eliminate the unneeded administrative overhead. How much are the administrators paid in each of these districts?

Menlo Park CSD is Basic Aid, I agree, but their overall property values are lower than the other three districts. That, combined with district-specific fundraising and property rental income, gives the other district higher spending per pupil averages than Menlo Park CSD.
