The Santa Clara County Board of Education (SCCBOE) passed a resolution affirming its support for Measure A at their October 10th meeting, citing their goals of equitable access to early care, health and education, strengthening services for foster and homeless youth, and continuing school support programs such as School Linked Services. The resolution passed with no opposition. Measure A, which is on the ballot for the November 6th general election, is an extension of an existing one-eighth cent sales tax passed by the voters in 2012. Measure A will secure approximately $50 million annually for County services including services to children and families, public safety, trauma and emergency care, affordable housing, supportive services for the homeless, transit for seniors and the disabled, agricultural preservation, and mental health services.
