Why has the Lafayette School District placed Measure L on the ballot?

Answer

The Lafayette School District is committed to maintaining the high quality of our neighborhood schools serving children in TK-8th grade. Our excellent teachers and rigorous math, science, and reading curriculum have prepared generations of students to succeed in high school, college, and careers. Unfortunately, years of state budget cuts have hurt our schools. Measure L is a thoughtful proposal supported by parents, teachers, and community leaders. It will protect core academics, help retain our high-quality teachers, and maintain class sizes to ensure that Lafayette students continue to flourish.
