Salinas High Union School District will be studying tonight the possibility of placing a parcel tax in their ballot. It really isn't a surprising development: with state funds drying up, school districts are looking for a way to make up shrinking sources of money.
Monterey Peninsula Unified officials are also studying the issue. And contrary to one of my reader's beliefs, I'm not for or against parcel taxes. I'm just cognizant of the crunch schools are in, along with the increased demands by parents and public. Something's gotta give, so what will?
If you're interested in the presentation about the Salinas Union parcel tax, the meeting will begin at 5:30 pm. at the district's office, 431 W. Alisal, Salinas.
