School district wants to hear from public

A special meeting to hear public comment on the Menlo Park City School District's long-term financial planning will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 6, in the district's TERC room, 181 Encinal Ave. in Atherton.

An earlier meeting on the topic was held in October. District officials say they are looking for community input on priorities and other topics.

Those topics include: how the district should spend any property tax revenue increases that are more than had been budgeted; how the district should respond to local housing development and growth of Stanford University; how the district should respond to decreases in projected enrollment growth; and whether increasing salary and benefits of teachers and staff encourages their long-term employment.

At is.gd/MPSInput find more information on the district's website, or send comments to info@mpcsd.org.
