Why should I vote for the Dysart Unified School District proposed override and school bond? My children are grown and my family does not benefit from this expense?
Whoa, bad thinking.
We are all in this together and our rapidly growing population of children is challenging the Dysart district’s efforts to provide adequate class sizes, strong teachers, and the excellent academic programs that we are used to having.
The override allows for the continuation of the current Dysart district override that has been in place for years. It’s not a new tax. The override provides the funds to staff, continuation of special areas classes like art, music, PE, and iExplore.
It provides for free, all-day kindergarten, and reading and math support. This is a miniscule amount that we all can invest considering the significant benefits that our communities, especially El Mirage families, will receive by having great schools, improved home values, and students who are workforce ready.
Join me and vote “yes” to continue the Dysart district override.
