The Menlo Park City School District has posted a feature on its website that aims to answer frequently asked questions about the district's budget woes and the process it's using to resolve them.
Answers are posted to questions about the district's structural deficit and cost-cutting and funding options, including a parcel tax. By Nov. 4, the document was 20 pages long.
One question dealt with on the page is why there was no return address on the envelope containing a community survey recently mailed to the district's registered voters.
The district says the consultants who created the survey mistakenly left the return address off the envelopes, "leading some to either miss or mistake the survey for something else. This was entirely unforeseen by the district."
The district says that any community member who did not receive a survey or lost the survey access code it contained can request a replacement by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The FAQs will be updated as more questions are submitted, Assistant Superintendent Erik Burmeister said.
The district says anyone with questions about the FAQs should send an email to email@example.com.
