BOARD CALLS FOR OVERRIDE ELECTION ON NOV. 3
Mesa Public Schools voters will decide whether to keep the district override funding in place.
The district's Governing Board called for a continuation of the maintenance and operations override. The measure was first approved by voters in 1995 and then renewed in 2000 and 2005.
Voters within Mesa Public Schools boundaries, including MPS residents who live in Chandler, will go to the polls on Nov. 3. Early ballots were mailed Oct. 8.
The renewal of this override by voters would continue funding for programs currently serving district students, including:
- Class size – continue to fund additional teaching positions that reduce class size.
- Security – continue to fund school security staff.
- Instructional supplies – continue to provide an additional supply budget allocation to each school.
- Employee compensation – provide a competitive compensation package for employees.
- Academic programs – provide additional or alternative academic programs.
- Technology training – continue staff training in the use of educational technology.
- Teacher training – continue one additional day of training for teachers.
