Yes on Measure AA
• T-shirts and window stickers distributed.
• All the PTOs in TTUSD (except us) have contributed. The Campaign is seeking to raise $15,000 to send out
mailers to the 17,000 voters.
• It was duly moved and seconded to donate $1,000 to the Measure AA campaign and approved by vote by
the group. (See also Treasurer’s report below).
• Remember the power of communication. Tell everyone you know to vote. It’s on page 3 of the ballot.
• We need two-thirds of all who vote.
o If every parent in the district voted yes, this would pass.
• Phone banking has hit 25% so far. Of those who answered, 37% are opposed.
• If the ballot requires additional postage, perhaps we could hand out stamps.
• Senior exemption-if you are 65 and older, you can mail in a form that makes you exempt to the tax.
• Good to clarify that the new building projects are separate from Measure AA.
• Each school will have one week of phone banking. Yvonne (ACMS) and Susie (Glenshire El) are leading
phone banking efforts.
o A script is available.
• Key message – it’s only $13 more.
• Get local high school kids and recent grads to Instagram this. Remind their friends that it will pay for the AP
classes they took.
Disneyland Ticket Giveaway
• Because of the importance to our school district of Measure AA campaign, we are postponing the
Disneyland Ticket Giveaway to November 30.
• Combine with a movie night?
• PTO bank balance is $6,370. We will probably need to contribute $2,000 for the upcoming 7th grade field
Conference Week is Oct 22–26
• Provide Measure Aa information when parents are coming and going? (Stephanie will ask Dr. Leri.)
• Susie will do a sign-up genius.
