A discussion about the details of a parcel tax that could be placed on the March 7 ballot is the sole topic of a special meeting of the Menlo Park City School District's governing board on Wednesday, Nov. 30. The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at the Hillview Middle School Performing Arts Center, located at Santa Cruz and Elder avenues in Menlo Park.
Superintendent Maurice Ghysels said the board will examine options for the amount of the parcel tax and how different tax amounts will affect reductions needed in the district's budget and reserves. Draft language for a possible measure will also be up for discussion.
The item is listed as a discussion item, not as an action item, meaning the board will not be voting on the tax that night.
The school board will also look at the latest results from an online survey now under way in the district and hear from a consultant from the Whitehurst/Mosher communications and strategy firm.
A meeting is also scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5, in the Hillview PAC. If the school board wants to put a measure on the March 7 ballot, it must take action by Dec. 9.
