Vote Yes on A


Renew expiring local funding that keeps excellent teachers and award-winning academic programs in local schools.

Los Gatos and Saratoga High Schools are known to be among the most prestigious public high schools in the state and nation, keeping our community and property values strong. Local students and teachers succeed in large part thanks to locally controlled funding that has directly benefited our neighborhood schools for the past decade.


Now that funding is set to expire unless we support Measure A.

Los Gatos and Saratoga High Schools rank dead last in many key funding metrics - high schools in Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Altos, Santa Clara, Cupertino and Sunnyvale all provide higher teacher salaries.


That’s why we need Measure A — to renew our local funding and ensure local teachers don’t leave for higher paying districts. Keeping skilled, experienced, and dedicated teachers in local schools is imperative to protecting quality education.

Protect Excellent Teachers and Top-Notch Academics 

  • Attract and retain highly qualified teachers and school staff 

  • Maintain core academic programs and high-quality science, math, technology, robotics, engineering, and AP courses

  • Provide programs that prepare students for college and future careers

  • Support high student achievement and success for all students

  • Ensure teacher salaries are competitive with surrounding districts

Strict Accountability Keeps Measure A Local

  • Measure A funds are locally controlled and cannot be taken by the State

  • Citizens’ oversight and annual audits ensure all funds are spent as promised

  • No funds can be spent on administrators’ salaries

  • Senior citizen homeowners will continue to be eligible for an exemption

Our outstanding schools are a crucial part of what makes our community special. Exceptional academics and skilled teachers not only prepare local children for lifelong success, but also protect the value of our homes here in Los Gatos and Saratoga.

Please join us in voting Yes on A.

Keep Los Gatos and Saratoga High Schools strong!
